Nancy & Stephen Grand Family House

Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects as Architects

Family House, a not-for-profit organization, provides free temporary housing to families of seriously ill children being treated at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) Benioff Children’s Hospital. For years, Family House’s two buildings near the university’s Parnassus Heights campus accommodated a total of 34 families per night. When UCSF decided to relocate the children’s hospital to the city’s Mission Bay neighborhood, Family House decided to construct a replacement facility a few blocks from the new hospital. Designed to provide a comforting and supportive environment for children and families, the new Nancy & Stephen Grand Family House doubles the capacity of the two previous facilities, with rooms for 80 families.

 

Set along the entire width of the block along Third Street, the ground-floor podium contains the building’s main lobby, activity rooms, administrative offices, storage areas, and utility spaces, along with a parking garage for staff and guests and a small rental space for retail serving the needs of guests and neighbors.

 

Above the podium, the four upper stories are configured in a C-shape around a second-floor landscaped courtyard facing a pedestrian mews to the west. Connected to the first-floor reception area via a grand stair, the courtyard provides access to terraces, a gym, and a social room for teenagers.

 

The upper floors are organized into eight clusters. Each cluster consists of 10 guest rooms, which line the building’s perimeter, and common areas, which face the courtyard. The guest rooms come in two sizes: a single room and a double suite. Each guest room has a projecting bay window, placed at alternating locations to create variety. Each cluster’s common area includes a shared living room, dining room, kitchen, play area, and laundry facility. A seven-foot-wide single-loaded corridor provides generous circulation and social space, with plentiful daylight and views to the courtyard.

 

To break up the mass of the complex, the long Third Street façade is subdivided into four volumes, two on each side of the central elevator lobby. Storefront windows of varying transparency provide visual variety along the eastern half of the ground floor. A landscaped setback helps transition between the public and private realms. Green vine-covered walls screen the parking garage on the western half of the ground floor while allowing for natural ventilation.

 

The building is designed to reduce energy use by 48%; LEED Platinum Certified.
