The Six

Location

Description

The Six offers 52 welcoming and supportive homes to individuals who have experienced homelessness, with 18 of them set aside specifically for veterans. In the military, “got your six” means “I’ve got your back.” Design by Brooks + Scarpa, the architecture thoughtfully balances privacy with opportunities to connect with the community. The Six has onsite supportive services and 24-hour property management on the ground floor, and community rooms and a spacious courtyard that offer peaceful respite and space for social gatherings on the second floor. Incorporating energy-efficiency measures that exceed standard practice, including passive design choices that maximize natural light and airflow, the project received LEED Platinum Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
