Tamarind Homes - Newcastle, WA
68 Condominiums Homes - Flats, Rowhouses, & Townhomes Average living area: 1,150 SF, with enclosed parking (2 stalls per home)
Tamarind Homes achieved a higher density than any other planning option considered, and did so with considerably less building mass. The flexible rowhouse and townhous prototypes also allowed us to create buildings in various configurations of attached units, to accommodate difficult grade changes and the organic form of the stream bed. The architecture explores the pattern effects of the rowhouse street wall, and makes an urban statement in color and form with standard materials.
