This project is notable for its intensity of yield, while providing a well thought-out urban design solution and an individuality to each of the six residences. The materials palette is well selected and contextually appropriate. Built form typology provided variety to each residence, even though the forms are repeated. The exterior façade proportions are well balanced and pleasing to the eye. Internally, the large central light courts create sheltered winter-gardens that are visible from most areas of the residences.
