Design Statement | Representing the first for-sale, multifamily homes in an area primarily dominated by rental housing options, the project truly cements the neighborhood as a walkable, mixed-use district and modern urban village. Home owners and guests enter Plan 1 at the ground floor and are welcomed upstairs to a second-floor great room and kitchen that maximizes available space to create a unified entertaining area with an expansive feel. Ten-foot ceilings allow for increased light and enhance the perception of volume. A third-floor master suit and secondary suite make this the ideal home for young professionals and first-time home buyers.
Designers located the powder room on the ground floor to keep guests from needing access to the third floor, which is kept as a private retreat for the home owner. The rooftop deck is served by a central stairwell and lightwell that floods the third floor with light and doubles as a separation from the neighboring unit’s rooftop deck. This truly becomes the haven where home owners and guests unwind and connect to the outdoors.
Judges’ Comments | Judges said that these homes are well thought out on a tight site. The rooftop decks offer both privacy and views, and the community’s amenities add to the total package.
