Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin

Supportive Housing Apartment Complex

Black River Falls, WI
14k SF

Seven Generations Architecture + Engineering (7GAE) was retained to design a 10-unit family-focused apartment complex for the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin. In addition to the apartment units, the 14,000-square-foot facility will feature a conference room, community gathering areas, community kitchen, and central courtyard.

The large, central courtyard design approach was in response to two of the central goals of the project. The first was to make the supportive housing apartment complex a welcoming and open environment for residents, families, and guests. The second was to maintain security through a single point of entry.

Rendering of single entry point into complex to maintain security.

Another goal that significantly drove design was maximizing the number of units while maintaining an acceptable budget. The design team developed a phasing plan that allows the Tribe to have plans for additional units while maintaining the current budget and standards for quality and comfortable homes.

Sustainable design elements were incorporated into the project include the use of clerestory windows to allow heat gain during winter months and shade in the summer, as well as the utilization of energy-efficient MEP systems and appliances.
