VOID: SURFACE:VEIL

The facade of Thin Flats is at once a surface and a void, blurring the limits of the units within. The facade of the lower units is pushed back from the sidewalk to accommodate circulation, flood a ‘basement’ space with light aid in solar shading and create a veil from public view. Balconies on upper floors recess from behind the surface of the veil to create opportunities for civic engagement within the thin space of the facade.
