The Hill Urban Apartment

The City of Homewood was very concerned about the scale, massing and architectural exterior vocabulary. We worked diligently to create an urban, residential vocabulary, that would compliment the surrounding neighborhood. While the site challenged us with its topography, it turned out that the stepping of the building allowed us to break the massing into a more appropriate scale. Then, by careful use of color, we were able to reinforce the scale. From a planning perspective, it was critical that we broke up the parking and placed it internal to the site, so that the streets abutting our community were inviting and pedestrian friendly.
