This 300 unit mixed-use apartment building embodies the concepts of event, movement and framing by responding to the site conditions of downtown Columbus, Ohio.
Architects: Valentine Catapano, Enio Dajko and Kevin Jones Jr.
University: The Ohio State University
The facades of the building identify the types of apartments within and simultaneously provide ideal views. Each unit has a private balcony to better iterate this concept. The balconies of the courtyard units are rotated to allow for views of greenspaces, downtown Columbus and the waterfront. The units adjacent to the highway have been provided with private green spaces and soundproong to minimize noise pollution from trac directly beneath the building.
The north and south facades of exterior units are almost entirely glazed to maximize natural daylighting. An open outdoor space is the nal stage of the site, providing residents with a framed view of downtown Columbus directly across from the rivers.
