The inspiration for this design came from the phenomena of the suburban lifestyle. Freedom of the outdoors and access to exterior living space lead to the question of how to make this possible in an urban setting. The most logical answer was to utilize space on the roof which typically goes unused. Combining the “Skinny Rowhouse� typology with a centralized stair core and access to the roof resulted in a balanced programmatic distribution of space which simultainiously maintains privacy along the vertical axis for the bedrooms on either side and brings guests to the public space on the top floors.

Master Plan


The urban aggregation strategy was based upon two main goals, creating density and encouraging urban neighbors. By providing rooftop yards, residents will have the same opportunity to develop relationships with neighbors as do residents in a suburban context. This is made possible by providing a high level of dense aggregation. The existing bike path remains to be used as a termination point for pedestrian walkways. Two formal green spaces were also added in order to balance density with open green spaces.
