Seven function-forward floor plan designs offer 1,062 to 2,275 square feet, up to three bedrooms and two baths with interior personalization opportunities, gourmet kitchens, spacious bedrooms, office areas and decks that connect to the outdoor scene. Defined by a neutral color palette, common architectural details and massing create a village atmosphere that will be timeless and complimentary as it ages.

By working closely with the city throughout the design process, the team focused on emphasizing the new wave of modern architecture within the community. Material availability and long lead times challenged the project schedule and budget. The team worked together to provide alternatives and adapted to availability with flexibility to allow for variables beyond control.

Situated in a thriving neighborhood in California, this modern collection of elevator-served flats and townhomes introduces a harmonious blend of contemporary style, open-concept spaces. The dark tone on the base of each building performs as a grounding element to anchor the elevation to the lively street. Pops of texture and a variety of materials create diversity that are complimented by metal elements, varied window patterns and glass railings.

From the Judges
This project is a great execution of contemporary design. Everything—from the materials to the colors to the detailing—is really well done. The designers really focused on the housing and paid attention to the outdoor spaces, too.
