Conroy Alley Residential Development
A unique hillside site that required subdivision of a large urban lot into four smaller lots while at the same time providing equal access and view lines for residents; this development proposal provided a sustainable solution through a pre-fabricated system using recycled content steel and insulated translucent panels. The gridded structure provided for a functional interior layout with central circulation access, which also allowed for the translucent panels to provide natural daylight to all living spaces within the homes. At night, the homes would be glowing lanterns articulating their distinctive qualities from the surrounding environment.
Holistic sustainable principles have been developed within the site and residence design to provide energy and water efficiency, reduced construction waste through prefabrication, nontoxic materials universal accessibility, positive and engaged social interaction among neighbors and a connection to the surrounding community both visually and physically. Such sustainable goals were developed through an integrated design approach with the client and design team.
