Housing for homeless veterans and their families! Starting construction on a new project is always exciting, but when a project includes a pump building from 1917 that will be converted into a social hall and bike storage for formerly homeless Veterans, its gets even better. Working together with Mercy Housing and VMWP Architects, the Veterans Village Project (in Colma, CA) will have 66 affordable units specifically for homeless veterans and their families and will also include amenities on the 2.23 acre site to help with their transition. One of the amenities we are eager to see completed and put to use will be the orchard & working farm where residents can be involved in all aspects of food production for their community.
Since our founding, JETT Landscape Architecture + Design has worked on numerous on-structure urban landscapes and developed an expertise with this highly technical project typology by working closely with our clients on both ground-up and retrofit projects. One of our recent successes includes NorthPoint Apartments, a five-courtyard podium renovation project in San Francisco. JETT collaborated with MBH Architects and a very talented team to recreate the courtyards in a way that would honor the original design by Lawrence Halprin’s office while bringing a unique, contemporary look to the project. The design team’s hard work seems to have paid off! The project was featured in the February issue of Landscape Architect & Specifier News magazine.

JETT Landscape Architecture + Design was recently featured in Hearth & Home Magazine’s August 2016 third annual Special Section on Outdoor Room Design Ideas, highlighting the firm’s contribution to the Hotel Zephyr at San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf. The Hotel Zephyr was a collaborative effort, joining JETT Landscape Architecture + Design’s technical expertise with Dawson Design Associates’ concept in order to envision an urban adult playscape. Designs were influenced by memories of iconic childhood board games such as Candyland and Chutes and Ladders, and layered with materials to evoke an industrial wharf. The design intends to present users with an array of sensory delights within a series of zones offering opportunities for play and rest.
