MBH Architects, in collaboration with Jon Worden Architects, has designed a new affordable housing project that provides low-cost rentals low-income families and seniors in the heart of Sonoma County.

The first phase of the development is Fetters Apartments, which will comprise 60 units spread across five buildings. One-, two-, and three-bedroom layouts will be available. A sixth building will act as a community space and feature amenities such as a communal kitchen, computer lab, laundry room, and a classroom for after school programs. A shared garden and a school playground help to link residents while a public bike and pedestrian trail encourages outdoor activities.
