    This unique steeply sloping infill site had it's share of challenges and potential. Stepping down the slope allowed us to give each of the four houses abundant solar access and territorial views. Even though the houses are small they feel spacious. Grouping the parking near the street, the use of pervious paving and the grated walkway help reduce the amount of impervious site surfaces.

  • A unique take on cottage housing, this new development use an elevated walkway to connect these four houses. The walkway provides a unique opportunity to have public circulation on one level passing over private yards below, resolves a difficult sloping site, and reduces the apparent scale of the houses while increasing natural light and views.
