A new 12-story building with 175 units of 100% affordable housing and a charter school. The K-8th Grade charter school for Brilla College Prep Public Charter School, developed with Civic Builders, is located at the first floor and lower level. The school allows for abundant daylight, as the steeply sloped site allows for much of the school’s lower level to be exposed. Along with classrooms and offices, there is a multi-purpose room which serves as a gymnasium and a cafeteria. The windows of the school have a playful vertical movement in which the facade is accented with brightly colored metal panels.
Above the school, the residential portion of the building is clad in alternating brick to temper the scale of the building. Large metal panel accents punctuate the brick, adding another level of texture within the cohesive building.
