GROWING URBAN HABITATS

Perspective

INTERSECT

-The juncture of two buildings at a corner create a public space that responds to the urban street. Semi-public fissures between units link the urban street to the protected garden.
-Walk-up entrances offer direct connections between units and public spaces.

INTERMINGLE

-The dimensions and orientation of different housing types reflect the democratic tendencies of modern life, yet within these two story drawers rooms shift, materials change and volumes intermingle.
-Modular units offer opportunity for people from all stages of life and all lifestyles to live together in the city.
