Design Characteristics

  • The eleven storey apartment building is clad in brick, with balconies lining the North and south facades. The ends of the east and west wings are composed of a homogenous brick facade with a vertical slit of windows that light the communal hallways. The windows on the upper-most floor are vertical strips, and are different from the rest of the windows on the building. There is also a large strip of glazing that starts at the top of the entryway, and goes to the top of the building, also lighting the building's hallways.
