“There is no logic that can be superimposed on the city; people make it, and it is to them, not buildings, that we must fit our plans.” — Jane Jacobs

Kevin Wilcock, AIA LEED AP leads RIM’s effort in housing design covering a spectrum of typologies such as micro-units, nested units, detached and semi-detached homes, stacked units, townhouses, and mixed-use urban infill transit oriented developments. Kevin’s experience in the practice of housing design is characterized by exuberance, elegance, creativity, and economy, and is strengthened, informed and enriched by our firms work in other fields such as hospitality, civic, commercial, and healthcare design, interior architecture, and branding.

Barely able to house a growing number of homeless teens, Covenant House, in downtown Anchorage, Alaska, was experiencing it’s own housing crisis. RIM was chosen to supplant this problem by combining two separate building facilities with multiple uses into one collocated and cohesive facility. Today, Covenant House is providing greater services, opportunities, and space for our youth in need to grow, prosper and become self-sustaining individuals. The building project consists of youth crisis shelter/community service areas: communal gathering, outreach, and activity spaces, emergency shelter administrative support functions, kitchen/dining, and residential housing; and executive administrative areas: offices, conference rooms, and associated program support functions.

Caswell Court is the last senior apartment complex within Cook Inlet Housing Authority’s Centennial Village, a campus focused on senior housing and wellness. The Commons mixes 26 one-bedroom apartments and eight two-bedroom apartments for a total of 34 completely accessible units designed specifically for seniors of varying ability. Co-located with Eklutna Estates, another senior apartment complex, the building maximizes the small site while still providing ample green space, parking and covered and uncovered outdoor plaza areas for residents. The design focused specific attention for the senior user for a warm and friendly environment. With an intense focus on sustainable design, energy models show that the building uses 38% less energy than buildings of similar type and size. PROGR AM:

The Eklutna Estate Elderly housing project includes a 59 unit building, common areas on each level, walking paths, garden plots, a roof garden, tenant storage space, plazas and covered and uncovered parking stalls. The design team worked to value engineer $1 Million out of the project based on the contractor’s pricing at 65% construction documents. Tactics such as moving the building 5 feet to the west to avoid shoring during construction and making slight structural changes provided big ticket cost savings and made it possible to keep not only the size and number of units intact through cost reductions, but also the overall quality of the building. Cook Inlet Housing Authority (CIHA) reported that after the project was complete, they received 155 applications and it took only four months to lease all 59 units. PROGR AM:
