Housing the homeless + Bungalow courts = WIN!

I'm a big fan of California's tradition of building bungalows around a courtyard (aka "Mews"), especially popular in the 1920s.  Architecture firm Modative just won a competition for converting derelict bungalows into housing for the homeless.  What a fantastic idea! Congratulations to Modative and their interdisciplinary team.  http://www.modative.com/heted-hybrid-bungalows/
