The new Longfellow House for the Ronald McDonald House provides 41 rooms for families needing temporary housing anywhere from a few days to six months. The U-shaped House is organized around a central healing garden defined by east and west living wings. Built with a concrete structure up to the second floor, its exterior is a combination of copper, brick, light-gauge metal siding and fiber cement. The living wings rely on slender cast-in-place concrete columns and a 10” thick concrete deck. The spaces are brought together by a green roof overlooking the Healing Garden and outdoor decks.
