Blue Jay Nest by Brooks Scarpa

A scalable-but-adaptable kit of parts building system built to meet the Los Angeles housing crisis on a grander and more local level

Designed to address LA’s shortage of supportive housing for the homeless, The Nest Toolkit is a home concept provides flexibility to meet the needs of a particular site, neighborhood, and bed count. Scalable as an infill solution, Nest toolkit can be configured in multiple ways using various site types and a typical lot size of 50’x150’, or a combination of them. The architects have designed a series of potential unit plans that differ according to rapid-rehousing, single-room occupancy (SRO) and traditional multi-family formations.
