BAR designed this apartment community, located in Palo Alto, CA, using the principles of traditional town planning. Two- and three-story cluster buildings are arranged to create neighborhood streets with parallel parking and direct entries to units. Gabled craftsman-style buildings complemented by rich and varied landscape are patterned on older Palo Alto neighborhoods.
Parking is largely obscured and distributed throughout the site, reinforcing the neighborhood's character. Of the 46-acre site, 25 acres are available for residential use with the remainder serving as protected open space.
