A new two and three story townhomes over a garage podium, designed in a highly attractive and sustainable manner. A gateway centerpiece of the design is a generous park with many trees and amenities. From shaded seating areas to landscaped gardens, these high performance and health enhancing townhouses are design to create a strong sense of community with an abundance of beautifully landscaped open space.
The residential character of the neighborhood is enhanced by enclosing the majority of the automobile circulation and all the parking below the podium deck, well screened from the adjacent neighbors and the street. The proposed styling of the homes references traditional residential forms and detailing while rendering them in a clean, bright, modern, eco-functional manner with care and sensitivity to the surrounding environment, solar orientation, and neighboring communities.
Massing the Materials are in keeping with neighborhood vocabulary; A small gate house provides access to the podium garden where porches are grouped and positioned to minimize the visual bulk of the homes relative to the street. The homes are grouped together into four buildings, shifted and positioned to create visual interest.
The building exteriors are designed with a blend of traditional materials: Smooth textured artisan siding, shingles, and trim painted with a palette of soft and complementary colors. Warm, stylish wood detailing occurs at the fencing surrounding the podium and greets the pedestrians with accents of color and texture. Modern complements and iron gates, along with landscaped planters, and open entry courts completes this natural eco private community.
