Star Clinic and Housing for Health Office
Los Angeles, California
Los Angeles County Department of Health Services’ new Housing for Health program aims to house 10,000 of the county’s most vulnerable homeless people in the next 10 years, and to serve as a knowledge hub of best practices to be shared with organizations across the country. When Housing for Health decided to relocate to Skid Row, the heart of Los Angeles’ homeless population, the county and Skid Row Housing Trust approached Gensler to design its new offices as well as a county-run clinic. The new 2,400-square-foot Housing for Health office occupies a highly visible storefront location, and the 1,300-square-foot Star Clinic provides both medical treatment and counseling to residents.
