Size: 6,000 SF
These townhouses, located in Jamaica Plain, are designed as a contemporary interpretation of their surrounding vernacular architecture, strategically employing similar building proportions, set-backs and materiality. The six-unit building's footprint utilizes the landscape beyond the physical limits of the houses, featuring an expansive garden in the back. Together with the client, we decided it was important to preserve the open quality of the existing site, creating a retreat within an urban setting.
