This Townhouse Complex Looks Like Separate Houses

Davidov Partners designed a townhouse complex that looks like it's comprised of separate houses. It began as a Spanish mission style complex that is now a textured exterior with decorative screen-like shades. Each townhouse has a different floor plan that appears to be autonomous from street view.

It's this notion that sets it apart from traditional townhouse plans, so you still maintain a sense of individuality in a communal-like plaza. The southern houses are flanked with glass on the east and west sides allowing natural light to flood the interiors. Screens are added to moderate this feature and provide even more texture to the appearance as well.

Northern houses have dining and living areas that open directly to the outdoors with disappearing sliding glass doors. Thus, natural light and individuality is optimized in the design.
