Client: Housing Authority of Island County
Location: Freeland, WA
Project Size: 26 Units of Affordable Housing
Sunny View Village Family Housing
Located in the city of Freeland on Whidbey Island, this project consists of a cluster of 26 units of affordable apartments for families. Seven units serve households earning 30% of area median income (AMI), thirteen are set aside for those earning 50% of AMI, and five are reserved for 60% of AMI, with an on-site manager’s unit.
Four buildings are clustered around a central court area that provides play space and easy access to services, including a common laundry room and an office. The buildings are oriented to maximize southern exposure, with each building having views into the surrounding green spaces. Existing trees were preserved as much as possible to create a buffer from adjacent neighbors, the central island highway, and an adjacent street. An existing wetland provides a natural greenspace and additional natural buffer.
