— ON THE BOARDS — 

Located in the heart of Ocean Beach, this concept project was part of a series of feasibility studies we completed for a developer who was focused on sustainability and community.  The project included four stand-alone units which each had flexibility for work-live home offices, multi-generational households and/or small vacation rentals.  The design created private outdoor areas as well as large common areas for community garden plots, children play areas, a large, outdoor movie screen and sun decks.  Some of the beach-appropriate details included an outdoor shower and surf racks, rainwater collection, permeable paving and grass-scapes, vertical green walls, solar power and a fruiting orchard which was intended to be shared with passers-by.
