Imagine Village is a permanent-supportive, affordable housing community of 75 units for veterans and families. Developed by Abbey Road and Abode Communities, this facility is also home to a Penny Lane Centers for adoption/foster care, as well as support services, community areas, and extensive landscaping. Part of a larger complex of non-profit companies, it is designed with the environment in mind. Utilizing the vast site, a balance of density and open space was achieved by programming multiple buildings with resident and unit types. Landscaping was used to create unobtrusive privacy and security.

The site is uniquely suited to work with the adjacent services building by the same developer. It is designed as part of a 4-building master plan for future development. A large mound and trees serve as a windbreak on the southern half of the property. Wooden slats shade and cool the main building, whose colors reflect the desert’s natural topography and sky.

By housing 30 veterans with mental or physical disabilities and 45 low-income families, this project reduces homelessness and supports productive contributions to society in the Antelope Valley area. These quality, sustainable homes are for those also deserving equal housing opportunities.

This project was the interior and exterior renovations of an existing, 103-unit multi-family complex that featured 5 buildings atop a double-podium of parking. The renovations included upgrading and adding mobility units, audio/visual units, energy upgrades, and a re-configured community room and management offices to comply with current accessibility standards. Casa Rita Apartments was the recipient of the first-ever Rehab of the Year Award by SCANPH in 2019.
