Luna Azul is a unique residential neighborhood designed specifically for people with life challenges. Having an adult daughter with a rare disability inspired developer, Mark Roth, to create Luna Azul. He envisions it as a place where residents can live permanently, while enjoying a sense of security, and making lasting friendships.

Q: What makes Luna Azul different from other communities for adults with disabilities?

A: First, by clustering neighboring houses around a shared garden courtyard, a pocket neighborhood provides the setting for neighbors to develop meaningful relationships beyond family and housemates. It is the physical basis for creating community with surrounding neighbors. Second, title to each cottage is sold outright, creating a permanent, safe and cost-effective housing solution for individuals and families with a wide array of abilities and disabilities.

Q: You used the term ‘Pocket Neighborhood’. What is that concept all about?

A: Luna Azul is designed chiefly by Ross Chapin, the Washington state-based architect perhaps most famous for designing to help create community. In many housing developments, family life is focused inside the home and within the walled backyards. But in a pocket neighborhood, there is a collective sense of ownership that extends beyond the front yard gates and into the shared commons. The active rooms of our cottages, including front porches, face the commons instead of turning inward, and their small scale has residents spilling out to the porch, where it's easy to engage in conversations with neighbors and passersby. These casual conversations can foster the development of caring relationships that help build a meaningful sense of community.

Q: What are some of the unique features Luna Azul has that are important to the community?

A: Our pocket neighborhood houses up to 73 residents in thirty 2- and 3-bedroom fully functional and independent urban cottages, built around a large clubhouse. With a secured entry, 24/7 on-site staffing and a traffic-free environment, Luna Azul's design will allow for spontaneity and encourage connections that lay the foundation for caring relationships and neighborly assistance when a fellow resident needs a hand.

Dominant themes among adults with disabilities are their desires for permanency, independence and self-determination. We believe home ownership at Luna Azul offers families and their life challenged adult both permanence, and the most reliable degree of choice and freedom.
