Lofty Townhomes in the Marina

Abramson Teiger Architects was invited to design one of three unit types at the R2 Living Complex.  This unit type caps a long run of townhouse condominiums and serve as a primary focus in the landscape of the complex.  The design needed to mesh with the other contributing designs while standing out as a more valuable end unit.

The end caps were designed to be iconic markers that showcased the bright and airy three-story living inside.  They offer volumetric connection from one floor to another, which is clearly showcased from the exterior through walls of windows.  Every unit sits atop its own two car garage.  The interiors are minimal and clean to provide a modern beach town aesthetic.
