ALTUS RIO – TOWNHOUSES

The Altus Rio Project includes two adjacent townhouses with two different clients within a larger condominium development. The location of the project is amazing in terms of the benefits of Urban In-fill. Very high density and a difficult orientation, i.e. Primary views are to the northwest/ and Northeast with primary exterior space residing on the North. Also to the North the large pubic open space that follows the Santa Fe River.  The most challenging and intriguing aspect is how to provide privacy & a social openness within a very tight space. Currently applying Defendable Space concepts and attempting to blur the lines between public and private. Both clients dedicated to Passive House Certification.
