Working with an existing site plan on a former commercial parcel, the challenge was to create an upscale residential character for the infill community within the limited landscape and setback allowances. The design response provides several distinct architectural elevations featuring familiar residential forms—from Craftsman to Mediterranean—that transform the simple plan types into a remarkable, diverse community. The design team fast-tracked the two and three-story, single-family, detached homes to deliver the development to market in record time.
