Gensler’s Village of Tiny Homes Approved by San Jose City Council

In response to San Jose’s growing homelessness problem, our friends at Gensler undertook two pro-bono design proposals for tiny homes. Now the plan has been approved by San Jose’s City Council, and a 40-unit village of tiny homes in the work. The homes would offer between 80 and 140 SqFt of shelter in Bridge Housing Communities; ~25 people might live (temporarily) in each community; The Mercury News reported that the city seeks to have such a village in each of its 10 council districts. According to the city, each site could have community bathrooms and showers, a cooking facility, common areas, and case management resources onsite.
