Mixed Use Housing
(# 981)
Images Description Credits
This mixed-use project provides 217 public and private parking spaces, 38 affordable and market-rate housing units, as well as retail space. An unconventional approach to parking organized the design. Its configuration (see section) made sense of the sloping site and car-heavy program to maximize active street frontage and create a contributive rooftop open space that anchors the hillside residential community. Architectural expression is rooted in passive, sustainable strategies utilizing thin cross-ventilated unit plans. Flats facing the boulevard (south) are engineered with exterior sliding wood screens that provide passive shading and an opportunity for enhanced privacy. Although the project did not pursue any LEED ratings, high social and environmental sustainability standards guided the aesthetics.
