7th and H Housing

7th and H Housing    Sacramento, California

7th and H is an affordable mixed-use housing development for people with special needs. The building includes 150 studio and one-bedroom apartments, and the ground floor features retail spaces and a medical clinic that serves residents. This facility is a part of Sacramento’s 10-year plan to reduce chronic homelessness.

Miller Company designed the landscape with a goal of providing comfortable areas for rest and socializing within a busy urban environment. Along the street, trees provide a barrier from cars and the nearby light rail station.

Once inside, residents can gather at a terrace meant for socializing and dining. A food prep station and barbeque area overlook raised planters of native grasses and trees. The terrace also features a waterfall for quiet contemplation. Miller Company used several hardy varietals around the site, including fruitless olive, ornamental pomegranate, manzanita, and creeping fig.
