Community Builders Program Fabricates Bench for the Aster Apartments

Recently, our Community Builders Program was tasked to fabricate a 12 foot long communal bench for the 56 unit Aster Apartments, a newly built affordable housing site located in South LA. The affordable housing site features both studio and one-bedroom apartments and includes on site facilities, in addition to being walking distance from the Blue Line.

 

The bench is made from American white oak acquired from Bohnhoff Lumber and powder coated steel tube legs. The bench sits in the main lobby of the building where residents have the opportunity to interact with one another while accessing their mailboxes or waiting to meet with the building manager. Together with our workshop leaders, the Artisans transported and assembled the bench on site.

Thank you RxLA for giving our Artisans the opportunity to provide furniture to the future residents of The Aster!
