Guaynabo, Puerto Rico (2023)
This project is awaiting construction and comprises 193 LIHTC units reserved for Seniors and arranged on eight levels above the support program components on the first level. An expansive oval plaza is situated on the roof of the on-grade parking. It is zoned for distinct uses such as large group gatherings and discrete, more cloistered settings. The ground level houses a community room, library, administrative offices, gym, and bicycle room. The repetitive facade is composed of a playful pattern of apertures and colored frames to help bring variety to the elevation walls. The building is designed for ICC-700 Sustainable Design Certification, and landscaping materials in the Courtyard are carefully selected to minimize the need for irrigation.
