Rehabilitation of and addition to a late 1940's rental housing development. This is a 300-unit condominium rental housing development. The project maintained the existing building footprints, adding second floors within new roof structures to create new duplex town houses.
The circulation was altered by creating a passage through the U-shaped buildings, thus making an entry courtyard of the inside space and allowing private outdoor yards in the more generous outside space.
One existing building complex was gutted and converted into a 11,000 s.f. recreational and social center.
