5 new contemporary urban townhomes within a residential historic district.
The design was shaped by the vernacular early modern traditions of the district. The clarity and minimalist approach established fits within the context of the neighborhood without attracting attention to it.
To mitigate the size of the lot and the parking requirements the units make use of open, efficient floor plans. The outdoor living spaces at the roof provide privacy for each resident, as well as the desired views of Biscayne Bay. The unit fronting the street provides a sense of singularity by offering a pedestrian entry, and a single vehicular drive to the dweller’s parking which doubles as a private garage found on neighboring traditional single family homes.
