6200 NORTH LAMAR BOULEVARD
Spring 2013 | Design 4 | Professor Charlton Lewis
Design for an apartment complex on North Lamar in Austin, Texas. The project explores a modular timber frame structure with curtain wall infill. The frames are assembled into 10’ x 10’ blocks, the blocks are then assembled and stacked as small communities. These clusters are then placed among the sites many existing trees, creating a meandering path way that links the major corridor of North Lamar Blvd. to the quiet neighborhood just beyond it. The buildings touch the ground lightly, minimizing impermeable cover in a suburban neighborhood where asphalt normally dominates.
