Nearly two-thirds of a city block, this 2.5-acre site achieves both high urban density and expansive green space. With density enhanced by construction above an intimately scaled auto court, three-story townhome units front both exterior streets and a serene, secluded, interior commons. Concrete masonry is used to express the unusual variety of unit configurations derived from the plan, with brick, stone, and delicate steel details yielding visually rich compositions.
