Urban Homes On A Shared Site
Design eleven homes on a site which includes shared out door areas, underground parking, storage facilities and community rooms.
This site zoned to accommodate four lots is planned to be rezoned to fit eleven small cottage-sized homes. The site is on a sloped lot in a residential neighborhood, which requires extensive City and Community involvement to comply with the limitations of residential zoning and building codes..
The site was developed to include underground parking for all units, at 1.5 spaces per unit. Community rooms were designed above the garage facing the street. The housing units were designed on top of a structural slab over the community rooms. The site then re-landscaped to blend into a park like environment for the shared residents.
