The design team decided to break up the six-story building and emphasize the variouscommon spaces such as courts, lobbies and community rooms. They introduced four-foot-long perforated, vertical metal sunshadesthat punctuate the building’s sharply angled prow at the street corner. Using different heights and facades on the inner and street-facing side, the architects added variety to the look of the neighborhood.
