Project Description

2009 RADA
Multifamily / Merit

Despite their radical break with tradition, the three black cubes dotting this hillside received no negative feedback from their blue-collar neighbors.
No doubt it's because the unassuming homes foster community by making the neglected pocket neighborhood part of the larger one in density and scale. New plat lines respond to elevation shifts and views of the Lake Superior harbor. “There are no lawns, just native grasses running over the whole site,” says David Salmela, FAIA. “We intentionally tried to hide the property lines, so the place has a European court like quality.”
