Project Description

A recently completed twenty unit development in Augusta, Georgia generates a new context in a blighted community on the rise. Located one block from the historic Laney Walker neighborhood, the architect’s challenge was to restore the vibrancy of an empty corridor while remaining sensitive to its former historic charm.

The result is a contemporary spin on southern vernacular architecture. A combination of single family and duplex units line the north side of Wrightsboro Road and provide a bright cheerful face for the neighborhood. Units are two-stories with porches and overhangs to provide shade from the intense summer sun. Crawl spaces under the buildings and large windows in all rooms encourage air flow and cross-ventilation in the hot and humid climate.

Each unit has two bedrooms, 1.5 baths and an open floor plan. Slight variations in window combinations, porch and entry configurations and building setbacks create the feeling of a diverse streetscape. The bright color palette sets each unit apart and pays homage to the vitality of this once thriving community.
