512GW TOWNHOUSE

THREE BUILDINGS
Understanding the current economic and environmental climate, and how it relates to our wellness, we decided to rethink the impact of the residence’s footprint on the environment. By adding a large extension onto an existing building with a footprint of only 19 x 40 feet, we converted this townhouse into an 8-story vertically stacked tower of rooms, wrapped within a spacious lattice envelope functioning as a climatic skin, a third ‘building’.

Completed in 2019, 512 GW Townhouse has been published in a number of publications, as well as receiving the 2020 Rethinking the Future Award, for housing over 5 floors (built).
