Developing high-density housing on small urban infill sites while maintaining plentiful light, air, and open space can be a challenge. This 20-unit townhouse project begins by drawing inspiration from both Dutch rowhouses and British garden mews.
The tall, narrow townhomes face each other across semi-private patios and landscaped courtyards. Garden paths lead past front landings to a shared grove courtyard lined with benches and public art—a series of kinetic steel birdhouse sculptures made by a local artist.
