Project Description2011 RADA
Multifamily / Merit
Presented with a former parking lot on the edge of a historic arts district, Archimania let context and site be its guide. The result is this five-unit, live/work townhouse project highlighted by polished concrete masonry blocks, metal bays, and glass storefronts that merge with the existing architecture of the industrial buildings in the district. Intended for live/work use, each three-level home is marked by bays and front-loaded balconies that address the street. “I like the way they stand out with the façade,” one judge commented.
