The W+P | 19six team took another field trip, this time visiting our recently completed cross-laminated timber (CLT) construction Kind in West Sacramento.
Kind was developed as an answer to the housing shortage that we see across all markets in California. It was envisioned as an affordable by-design community that provides housing security to a specific segment of the market. The vision is to transform that security into positive action for residents and the greater community.

The Kind in West Sacramento offers a variety of community-driven amenities. A community garden, onsite laundry room, indoor and outdoor fitness areas, bike maintenance station, a barbeque, and a picnic area where residents can gather and build community. Each piece of this project was thoughtfully designed to bring the residents together in meaningful ways.
By using CLT, we see several benefits for developer and residents alike. Strength, versatility, and reduced environmental impact are the well-known strengths of CLT. Additionally, this material offers excellent thermal, seismic, fire, and acoustic performance. These qualities have an additive effect and contribute to overall aesthetic and livability.
