Inspiration

For this project, our inspiration came from the courtyard garden in Brooklyn Prospect Park, where natural elements define an open space.

Concept

Commissioned study for a 55,000 SF multi-family Passive House Development. Two separate buildings on an 82’ x 200’ city through-lot create a breakdown in scale and a semi-private interior garden courtyard with maximum connection to urban nature. 36 residential apartment units from 1 to 3 bedrooms with underground parking, will have the healthy, comfortable indoor environment and energy efficiency that Passive House provides. This multifamily community model is translatable and scalable in many contexts.
