through circuit

Working within the typology of low-rise rowhouses, this project proposes an increase in the typical density and a reversal of the street frontage relationship in order to create visual and physical connections through the site. These moves allow for the development of a backyard space which extends the living zone of each unit and provides access for all residents to a multi-level public zone. By assigning different programmatic identities to the backyard and the frontyard, the stair cores that connect the two become part of a network of circuits through the site. The units themselves are a mixture of sizes, ranging from a studio unit to a three-bedroom two-story family unit with the intention that multiple generations can occupy a building while still providing a sense of a home for families.
