Set on a 1.3 acre site at the corner of Redlands Boulevard and Fern Avenue in Redlands, CA, this senior citizen apartment building is a testament to “craftsman style” architecture applied to a modern program and construction techniques.
Fern Lodge is two and three stories tall and crafted of wood frame construction with concrete masonry unit veneer. It houses 62 units of state-of-the-art senior citizen apartments and was constructed under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s 208/8 program.
The first floor, at the corner, is anchored by the building’s community facilities which include a community room and kitchen, the building’s lobby and administrative spaces. From the broad sweeping roof lines, to four-part columns and balcony rail detailing, this building epitomizes craftsman design and detailing.
