Level 1

Level 1

Level 1 is an innovative housing model that combines the advantages of a townhome and a live/work unit in a compact plan that takes advantage of shared spaces on the ground level and optimizes private outdoor space with expansive individual roof decks.

Although the units are closely configured with small setbacks and minimal open space, the informed balance between the public realm and the private spaces, coupled with the orientation of the units and the conversion of the roofs to useable, inviting, outdoor space, creates a sense of neighborhood while protecting the residents’ need for personal, private spaces—indoors and out.

Workspaces on the ground floor feature roll-up doors that open to private patios and the communal walk-ways. Personal residential space is located on the upper floors. Generous roof decks provide ample space for entertaining.
