22 Oct Tamien Station
Located adjacent to the CAL TRAIN/VTA Light Rail at Tamien Station, the master-plan for the mixed-use project considered a new parking garage plus expansion, and space for future commercial/retail development. The complex includes affordable and market-rate apartments, a day care center, community spaces and small retail component. An easement dividing the site is treated as a public passageway that terminates in a village plaza facing the transit station. The contemporary architecture celebrates the experience of transit and people motion, with the bold, large-scale facade components addressing the train-side while those facing the rear and side streets are smaller-scale with more detail.
