Quixote Village

Quixote Village is the new home for Camp Quixote – a public/private partnership to house 30 individuals formerly living in tents in Olympia, Washington. The project was designed and developed under the Washington State Evergreen Sustainable Development Standards program to ensure long life, easy maintenance and a healthful environment for the residents. Self-managed by the villagers and assisted by Panza, a not-for-profit group created specifically to assist Camp Quixote with their housing and social needs, the village maintains full-time staff members to help residents with social, economic and mental issues they may be struggling with. The village consists of 30 cottage each with a bed, desk, toilet, sink and closet along with a house which contains shower rooms, laundry room, living room and communal kitchen. My role was design development, project management, consultant coordination, ensuring sustainability goals were met, and project documentation. Project completed while at MSGS Architects in collaboration with Garner Miller, AIA, Principal-in-Charge.
