This building designed for an urban locale is both an art gallery and a residence. The gallery and outdoor garden occupies the ground floor with a 4 bedroom apartment occupying the upper 2 floors. A single car garage was also fit into the program to accommodate the apartment owner’s need for a vehicle for weekend getaways. The art gallery showcases the work of graffiti artists, which is normally considered a nuisance and eyesore in the urban environment. I designed an alternate version of the building which I ultimately rejected as the floor plan and circulation patterns didn’t function as ideally as the featured project. The rejected plan is shown below in the photo gallery.
