Homekey Mountain

2021


48 prefabricated modular units are arrayed on this long and narrow mid-block site in Mountain View to form a homeless shelter and support facility serving 120+ individuals, couples, and families.

Delivered under a highly accelerated six-month construction schedule, the project is the result of an incredible collaboration among the City of Mountain View, XL Construction, Saris Regis Group, and LifeMoves. Our role was to design the overall site plan and coordinate modular unit designs of four different fabricators: Connect Homes, Falcon Structures, IndieDwell, and Urban Bloc. The facility provides LifeMoves with much-needed space to help the South Bay’s housing-vulnerable population transition to stable housing.
