project overview

The Blakely apartment complex was designed to optimize the number of apartments on a small lot. The narrow building site of .79 acres presented unique challenges for our team, but with clever design solutions, we were able to arrange three buildings with seventeen total units. By stacking Building 1’s apartments on top of ground level parking, we provided our client with the maximum number of units while keeping construction cost-effective. We also removed an existing single-story building and several dying trees from the site, which provided extra space. Additionally, during the construction process, the client purchased the adjacent lot which allowed for even more units and space. We selected exterior building materials and chose the color scheme to blend-in with the surrounding neighborhood. Lemongrass shingle siding in the gables, concrete masonry units in the ground-level parking areas, stone veneer pillars at apartment entrances, and bold colors such as reds, oranges, and greens bring a unique but modest beauty to the neighborhood.
