Courtyard Housing 5

Completed in 2014, Courtyard Housing is located in Portland, Oregon. This 30,000 s.f project is about one-bedroom and studio apartments with an ultra-efficient, graceful design by Hacker Architects. The design can provide an attractive presence outside and also a delightful living experience inside for the urban dwellers.

An attractive presence and delightful living experience can be delivered through the ultra-efficient, graceful design for these studio apartments. The efficient aspect is perfect for the urban dwellers who value convenience, natural light, and also sustainability. Beauty and value to the local community also can be added by the residential-over-retail building space in these studio apartments.

There is a beautiful green space at the center of the building, creating airy outdoor spaces for groundfloor businesses and restaurants. The courtyard allows sunlight in each unit from two sides, plus cross-ventilation for the upper residential floors. It becomes a more humane and environmentally friendly alternative to apartments that lack of windows.

Outside the studio apartments, the dwellers can enjoy an attractive outdoor. They also can have a delightful living experience by living inside. For this beautiful project, Hacker Architects has been awarded AIA Portland 2030 Award and AIA Portland Merit Award in 2015 for its efficient design and its beauty. The LEED Platinum, 2030 Compliant, and Sustainability PDF certification are also given to this project.
