The proposed project is located on a shallow lot along a residential side street in a historic urban neighborhood. The program includes common space amenities, a fitness center, landscaping, and on-site parking. A mix of townhouse-style multi-level units and apartment flats are provided, in one-, two-, and three-bedroom

Apartment Configuration

Due to the tight site constraints and various unit configurations required, multiple massing strategies were explored.

Strict zoning regulations required vehicle parking to be located to the rear of the site, so scenarios with a vehicle pass-thru were considered.

Design Schemes studied different building shapes, some with a driveway under the building and others with a driveway outside of the building.

A = Two Bedroom B = One Bedroom C = Studio

Different unit mix studies took place to ensure maximum space efficiency.

Progress 3D studies help the design team understand the volumes and masses of the different spaces and the overall feel and interaction with daylight.

3D study of the mail area is adjacent to the fitness center. A separate room for large resident packages was provided on the ground level as well.

Exterior Design at the end of the Design Development Phase.

The design of the lobby is intended to evoke a bright and inviting mood by strategically using color, views, and materiality. Finishes include engineered hardwood floors, stone tile, crisp white paint, and brass elements throughout. Amenities in the lobby include the reception, mail room, work, and lounge spaces, and a coffee station.

The lounge and workspaces in the lobby create a functional space for tenants while keeping common areas active and lively.

The residential units’ aesthetic approach is intended to provide a clean backdrop for the tenant’s furniture and décor, featuring herringbone LVT floors, white walls, doors, and cabinetry with brass hardware to tie to the rest of the building’s metal elements.
