The building massing takes the form of stepped volumes along the most prominent south frontage, further differentiated by color blocking. These building forms frame two courtyards—one at-grade and one on the podium—that are connected by open-air bridge circulation linking the west and east volumes.The west facade’s sawtooth bays orient windows to the northwest to minimize solar gain. Perforated metal sunshades provide an additional level of detailing and architectural interest at the upper levels.
At the ground level, natural materials—weathering steel, textured concrete, and an aluminum and glass storefront—are paired with a garden entry sequence for a warm and welcoming street presence. Stormwater planters and extensive permeable surfaces provide rainwater filtration and resiliency.
