Following the decision by UCSF to build a new children’s hospital in Mission Bay, Family House constructed a new facility to better serve the families whose children are receiving treatment at the medical center. Family House provides comfort and housing completely free of charge.
The 92,125 sq. ft., four-story, wood-frame-over-concrete-podium building serves 80 families. The facility includes multiple-area kitchens, living rooms, dining rooms, a gym, a meditation room, and an outdoor activity space, including a basketball court and barbeque area.
The ground floor contains the main lobby, various activity rooms, administrative offices, storage and utility spaces, and a 90-stall parking garage for staff members and guests. The ground floor also contains small rental spaces for retail serving the needs of the guests and neighbors.
The project has been certified LEED® Platinum.
