Program: Approached by a local developer, this project was penciled out to produce 3 high end connected townhomes, with commercial space on the ground level. the project has a very monochromatic palette of smooth steel troweled stucco. the large operable windows provide “hot points” where the stucco folds into itself, to create facades that fold to and from the street. it has the appeal for the modern home buyer, while qualifying for leed certification.
Floor to floor ceiling heights of 10′, and double and tripple height open spaces, clearly gives the feel of a loft space, hence the name of the project.stairs at 5′ wide, hallways also at 5′ wide lead through the space without the feeling of cramping.
The last flight of stairs leeds to the roof deck, where an outdoor room can be found.. a built in fire place, and seating areas, lends the space to year round usage, in this climate.clear expanses of glass at the entry, create a portal of entry which brings the user/home owner into a new and warm enviroment that welcomes openess, and sence of calm.
