Sixth + Willow

Summary

The façade undulates to align with its neighbours’ and seamlessly turns the corner up the hill onto Willow Street. Unlike its neighbours, its street face is uniform in expression. It refuses to blend in with the articulated facades of the surrounding buildings. In contrast to the rough texture of the exterior façade, the internal courtyard is clean and bright. Its rhythm and repetition are inspired by Louis Kahn’s Salk institute. This aesthetic carries through into the minimalist interiors of the units.
