Jake's Run townhouses
This infill project in the historic Kings Heights neighborhood consists of three four-story townhouses and a separate shingled Carriage House containing two smaller units and five garages. The buildings flank a central brick court, which serves as both intimate entry and vehicle access.
The overall design is an expression of English Arts and Crafts principles, characterized by simple volumes of stucco, shingle and wood siding, with little overhang or ornament. Finishes emphasize natural materials: cedar windows, siding and shingles, fir trim, and rough stucco finish. National and local American Institute of Architects award winner.
Williams Alley Apartments
Seven townhouse apartments neatly inserted into a 5,000 s.f. infill site. Simple volumes and traditional siding materials are accented with mahogany-clad balconies and deep overhangs. Features include a green roof, private terraces and vaulted ceilings on the second floor. Unit access is through a landscaped entry alley with permeable pavers. All storm water is retained on site.
This 2 1/2 acre development, on the site of a former store and parking lot, provides 111 units of new housing to the central business district of St Johns. The design reinforces local themes in the area through materials and scale, to help integrate the medium density project into an established neighborhood.
The buildings surround a central access court containing a large landscaped green space, which buffers views through the site. Careful window orientation further maximizes privacy, emphasizing views into the green space and out to the St Johns Bridge and Forest Park beyond. By creating density near shopping and transit, these affordable market rate dwellings will help revitalize a strong but under utilized business district.
