To revitalize this 1970s apartment complex and make it more desirable to potential renters in both appearance and function, Hennebery Eddy identified opportunities for strategic, cost-effective improvements. Design concepts focused on refreshing the two-building complex with a modern feel inspired by the era in which it was originally built. We upgraded public spaces, entries, and exterior balconies to create a welcoming atmosphere, and increased transparency at building entrances to clarify circulation and create places where people want to linger. A significant project goal was to upgrade the existing public amenities. Prominently located in the core, a new cedar-clad amenities building provides accessible public space, uses passive systems, and creates a sense of community.
