David Baker Architects arranges an affordable housing complex in San Francisco that is geared to benefit people aged 62 and up. The project attempts to build a strong, engaging and vibrant community, all the while alleviating financial stress for low-income individuals.

Situated in the African-American neighborhood of the city, David Baker Architects' affordable housing complex is called the 'Dr. George Davis Senior Building.' The strategic layout of the project entertains a U-shape and the studio incorporated two bars, a courtyard, and other socially driven spaces. The structures boast a "wide range of African-inspired design elements" that were requested by the local community. This adds a culturally potent quality to the building complex.
