SoMa-based architects honored for affordable housing design

Bob Herman and Susie Coliver, principals of Herman Coliver Locus Architecture, will be honored at Episcopal Community Services’ Annual Awards Luncheon for their work designing affordable housing which contributes to the health and humanity of our community.  

The couple, who live in a charming residential enclave in Western SoMa and operate their nationally recognized design studio on Clementina near 4th Street, designed the Bishop Swing Community House at 10th and Folsom Streets, 134 single-room occupancy (SRO) apartments housing formerly chronically homeless single adults in substance-abuse recovery, and the Canon Barcus Community House, 48 apartments for formerly homeless families along with a childcare facility and supportive services and a vocational Skills Center.

The ceremony takes place on February 1, 2012 from 12:00 noon to 1:30 p.m. at the Julia Morgan Ballroom, 465 California, 15th Floor. Tickets are available at
