To create an illusion of individual homes this ten unit apartment complex, located on a steep hillside, is conceived as a collection of house-scaled blocks that mediate between the grain of the single-family neighborhood (above) and anticipated high density development (below).

The parking garage, entered from a narrow easement, is cut into the hill. On the next level up perimeter retaining walls extend to support upslope neighboring yards. These walls backdrop private patios that open off a shared courtyard. The configuration optimizes open space and fosters community while camouflaging the project’s 30 units/acre density and proposes an alternative model to the conventional infill apartment typology.
