Map

The senior housing encircles a courtyard with a koi pond.

Covering six acres next to Mission San Jose, one of California's original Spanish missions, founded in 1797, Oroysom Village is a mix of family townhouses and senior apartments.

To create a sense of community, the site is organized as a neighborhood grid, with parking for residents and guests arranged along the streets. A network of broad pathways pass between the homes, creating a setting for socializing as well as connecting community recreation facilities and play areas.

Townhouse beyond the community rose garden.

The family townhouses, which range in size from one to four bedrooms, are grouped into diverse buildings to create a relaxed organization and maximize landscaped open space. Individual homes are personalized with private entries, trellises and patios, and feature distinct elevations and roof lines.


One-bedroom apartments designed for seniors occupy an L-shaped building that bends around a courtyard garden, providing a sheltered shared environment. Senior apartments feature individual balconies with trellises that overlook the streetscape or the garden, and share dedicated laundry and community rooms.
