We developed a row of 18 three-story townhomes along the mid-block walkway to provide a gateway to Mithun’s podium building and inner courtyard. and to mediate between the scale of this larger mass and the pedestrian mews.
We drew on our extensive experience with single-family residential townhouses to bring a human scale and sense of individuality to this 143-unit housing development, which includes supportive services for formerly homeless families. The townhomes feature generous fenestration, a rhythm of projecting bay windows, and colorful accent panels to activate the facades and give scale to the landscaped pedestrian walkway. Individual ground-floor residential entry stoops activate the public realm and double-aspect units provide access to daylight and eyes on the street.
