Multifamily Townhouse Concept

Phoenix, Arizona


Trellis invited a few Phoenix firms to prepare a multifamily concept. 


The lot was very thin and long. By turning the units at 20 degrees they can be more easily accessed, and it also gives them a good look. This is considerably different than all the square facing surrounding projects on Colter Street.


Using CMU firewalls in between the multifamily units has practical and aesthetic reasoning. A solid grouted CMU wall mitigates sound issues. The separation keeps fire contained to each unit and was designed in such a manner as to have an architectural quality.
