This proposal had to provide quality open space open to the sky, natural light and ventilation to all rooms, and space for two cars to be parked undercover and adjacent to the front door. The model for this was Kiyonori Kikutake's 1970 Pasadena Heights.
The snaking plan flips as it steps back to create "in-phase" light wells into which rooms of different apartments overlook different levels according to their distance from the front of the plan. The lowest level has planting providing the semblance of gardens lining driveways.
The fully integrated plan and section provide privacy and light where it is most needed and less of it where it is not.
