Project: A co-living mixed use development in San Francisco to address the housing needs of young working individuals.
Concept: A "community within a community" inspired by the surrounding architecture and urban planning of the Embarcadero by John Portman. Portman used the “city within a city” concept to rethink the way buildings interacted with the surrounding public space. Building cores are punched through to bring daylight in and create a series of courtyards. Circulation winds upward around staggering layers and turns the climb into a stimulating experience. A sociopetal layout, which faces residents toward an open core, encourages a social, community lifestyle.
