Project Description

The approach to the design of this project was to create an L-shaped 3-story building oriented along the North and South property lines that integrate into the context of the Midway Village neighborhood in Daly City. The design of the apartment complex is comprised of five individual 3-story “towers” connected by covered stairwells. Each floor within each building contains 1 – 2 units to reach a total of 18 units, all of them to be below market rate housing. Simplicity is an overriding characteristic of the exterior expression – each of the buildings has a basic geometrical design that is essentially a cuboid shape with balconies carved into the mass at each level. Contemporary materials have been used such as horizontal cement board siding accented with the use of western red cedar siding.
