505 Houses

-A A +A
2006, Collaborative Designworks. 505 W. Alabama Ave.

Architect James M. Evans treated this cluster of four three-story row houses, organized around a central driveway, as a problem in urban design. The pinwheel composition of street elevations discloses the organization of interior spaces, which are expansive, in contrast to the tightly defined, street-like central court.
