alexandria multi unit residential

Just finished a new design.

Tricky orientation and a very tight site.

Needed to crank the front balconies to achieve complying solar access. Gave a more interesting take on the usual egg crate facade treatment that seems to be "de rigueur" in RFB designs now-a-days. Being in a flood zone made basement access even more difficult but it works with a raised ramp entry and corkscrew style levels below. A mix of single level and two level units provide for a good mix.

A touch of brutalism with some softer finishes.
