San Francisco CA | Completed
Affordable ownership two and three-bedroom townhouses and a separate community building are designed to fit into the neighborhood context. The design strategy is based on a small residential scale but achieves a high density of units per acre. Completed in 1985, a development of 42 affordable units range from 942 square feet to 1,168 square feet. Nine of the units accommodate the handicapped. Each unit includes a one-car garage. Using tile roofs, and detail relief on the stucco exteriors, the design reinterprets the stylistic treatment of the surrounding neighborhood. The project is unified by a horizontal stucco string course that extends through the entire complex, climbing the site along the curved walls which enclose patios while maintaining the street edge.
