scroll View Description

This six-unit apartment creates new affordable housing convenient to downtown – a critical component to maintaining the vitality and energy that makes Austin such a great place to live. The simple concept celebrates the open central stair, which creates an inviting entry and divides the building into two discrete volumes to continue the pedestrian-friendly rhythm of the street. Large north-facing windows afford ample daylight without undo solar heat gain. Restrained detailing throughout creates a simple and serene complex that breathes life into the street and the city.
