ALTADENA & MOHAWK TOWNHOMES


CLIENT:          
HERALD INVESTMENT COMPANY

TYPOLOGY:  
MULTI-FAMILY HOUSING

In a balance between project density, (appropriate to economics and site activation), and adequate outdoor area/garden space, the 18-unit option was selected - 14 of the units 2-story townhomes and the remaining four (forming the back area 3rd story) will be studios.

A contemporary style was proposed whose materiality and color tones will be resonant with the long traditions of both Craftsman architecture and wood-centered developer architecture in the larger neighborhood and the City. This approach - which will also combine porches and terraces with outdoor balconies - all in a well-setback setting that will allow rich tree cover and dappled sun/shade - will result in a project that is particular to Pasadena in both style and climate response.
