2012 RESIDENTIAL CITATION AWARD

The Charmer
Architect: Jonathan Segal, FAIA

This project is an investigation into how the courtyard housing,commonly found in California in the 1920’ could be integrated into a site that would normally be occupied with twice the residential density and use an ubiquitous underground parking scheme. A central court was developed with six distinct one bedroom bungalows each with their own glass front doors that looks onto the court and create a convertible/controllable level of social interaction regulated by the individual occupant.
