The success of the relationships between the structures, the interior courtyards and the attached trellis structures become paramount to the design integrity of the whole. Opportunities to strengthen selective design elements of the residential structures to benefit the complex arise from our approach accentuates these connections through the introduction of new window systems, the design of new trellis structures rear placed over the carport in addition to a trellis that spans the upper deck and over the ground level patios threads through each of the buildings. It serves to unite the individual residences, the buildings, landscaped areas and the community.
