Project Description

The city has a number of under-utilized sites that could be considered in order to build more housing. Some of these sites are the industrial areas in the Dogpatch’s waterfront. The project takes the existing warehouses on the site along with the existing streets as modules and proposes a dense city grid that occupies the available area in all its extension. However, it does so by proposing the densification of the area through two low-rise typologies: a warehouse and a patio house typology. The variability of the grid allows for small city lots but also for generous exceptions that may support other programs.
