The 63-unit Cypress Apartments — located in San Diego’s East Village and designed by Carrier Johnson + CULTURE — has been awarded the Gold Nugget Grand Award in the category of Best Supportive/Transitional Housing.
Designed on a limited budget for a public-private partnership led by developer Affirmed Housing, the permanent supportive housing Cypress Apartments earned the Grand Award for providing a beautiful and welcoming home featuring gracious amenities and supportive services on-site for its formerly homeless residents. Built on a small construction site, the residence also features a bold, artful facade that reflects and enhances the surrounding East Village neighborhood and its thriving arts community.
