Elementa Brush Park
Amy Baker Architect
Elementa is proposed as a 16-unit new construction condominium project in the heart of historic Brush Park. As a project, Elementa’s overall emphasis is on homeownership, specifically integrating market rate and affordable for-sale units in a single development. Because ownership is critical to the long-term stability and growth of the city as a whole, one of the key objectives of this project is to promote equity and inclusivity
The project consists of twelve 1,000 SF stacked, terraced townhomes. In addition, four carriage homes are nestled at the rear of the site, offering 1,200 – 1,500SF of living space per home. All parking for the project is designed into the site. The townhomes are designed as stacked bilevel units with two units per stack. Each townhome unit features 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, as well as open concept kitchen, dining and living rooms oriented for entertaining and family gatherings. The upper level townhomes are designed to maximize both light and views. The townhomes are parked via a covered carport.
The carriage homes are designed like standalone homes. The standard floorplan will include 2 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms with generous living areas. Each carriage home will have an individual private courtyard and a private garage, with the two central carriage homes rising to a third level that houses an additional rooftop terrace. Every effort has been made to proactively design the project in close coordination with the newly adopted Brush Park Form-Based Code and in alignment with the Elements of Design for the Historic District.
