The vibrant city of Los Angeles, a transformative project called Ashley Willowbrook Apartments, was taking shape. 

This 61-unit supportive housing development nestled within the Compton/Willowbrook neighborhoods, was set to become a beacon of hope for the community.  Our design atelier had the privilege of being involved in this meaningful endeavor. 

Ashley Willowbrook Apartments were designed to provide affordable housing options for individuals and families with limited incomes.  The development offered five cozy one-bedroom units and ten spacious two-bedroom units, all tailored to households earning at or below 60% of the Area Median Income {AMI} for Los Angeles County.  However, the project went even further by reserving forty-one units for extremely low-income households, with thirty-seven of those units specifically designated for households experiencing homelessness.


This was a project close to our team heart’s, we believe in the power of design to positively impact lives.  As the design team embarked on our mission, we faced a unique challenge: furnishing 30 of the 61 units, as well as the community room, lobby, leasing and case managers’ offices while working within a restricted budget for each space.  Despite the financial constraints, we were determined not to compromise on the quality and design of the spaces.  We saw it as an opportunity to prove that affordable housing projects could also boast remarkable aesthetics and thoughtful design.  We created an environment where residents could take pride in their homes and find solace, belonging, and inspiration.
