Some projects are more challenging than others! Faced with an incredibly tight site and the prospect of simply replacing a one story, existing structure, Bass Studio Architects helped our Client shape a creative solution. Thinking outside of the box allowed us to create a unique urban jewel box. The solution provides our Client with commercial space on the first floor, with two new loft units, and a bonus micro unit above. The building scale is responsive to the neighborhood, urban context and may become one of those unique urban episodes one finds when wandering around vibrant urban areas.
The design process included resolving a myriad of regulatory hurdles in weaving the new structure into the tight site and building mix. Look for it soon!
