The Viridian

BHA created design concepts for a new 160-unit condominium complex. The proposed site was a former scrap yard located between the residential neighborhood of 2nd Street and the industrial environment of American Street Philadelphia. The design concept envisioned three new buildings - a seven-story mid-rise, a four-story residential unit and a one or two-story industrial structure. 

The buildings reflect the shift between neighborhoods by using more traditional materials, such as brick for the residential units and metal panel for the outside of the industrial artist studios.
