Bogen Family Center
Los Angeles, CA


St. Anne’s, which has been providing service to women since 1908, recognized and wanted to meet the need of young mothers emancipated from foster care and needing transitional housing and support. Housing, counseling, training and a child-care facility comprised the building program to be constructed within the existing urban setting. An L-shaped structure completes the campus and creates a greatly-needed common open space. The first floor has a 10,000 SF Child Care Center designed for 100 children from infants through preschool. The first floor also contains support functions for the 38 transitional apartment dwellers on the second and third floors. The 580 SF sunny apartments have bay windows, energy efficient kitchens and an oversized bedroom for a mother and child.
