Greenway Gables, Loring Park Housing – Minneapolis, MN

This development responded to a city-sponsored urban design study of the Loring Park neighborhood of Minneapolis. The design includes connections to the adjacent Loring Greenway and Loring Park, interlocking but separate pedestrian and vehicular circulation, a hierarchy of public and private spaces, and a strong neighborhood identity. Architectural concepts grew from concern for security, privacy, unit identification, and variety of unit types. A distinct architectural character, use of natural light, and landscape amenities characterize the design.
