CHALLENGE:
Despite a challenging site with a significant grade change, the goal was to make a signature design statement while creating market savvy condos and efficient retail space.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • The complexity of the site proved to be the springboard for a creative solution. The significant grade change was used effectively to create two stories of enclosed parking, each with direct access to street level, without incurring the cost of below grade construction.
  • A 2,800-square-foot retail component is located on the “point” of the triangle at an intermediate level between the parking levels.
  • The site also influenced the design of the 38-living units. Each of the units was custom designed to respond to its place in the building as well as its exterior orientation.
  • The building’s exterior development reflects a sensitive response to the surrounding urban fabric. The more public six-story western elevation features a rising cornice line. This inflection as well as the masonry exterior acknowledges larger structures to be located south and west of the building.
  • The sculptural glass, five-story element on the point celebrates the northern boundary of the development corridor.
  • The eastern and southern elevations start at four stories and gently slope toward the building entry and retail component. This façade is modulated with deep balconies, horizontal siding and articulated simulated stucco to create a scale more sensitive to adjacent single-family homes and duplexes.
