Project: West Government Way Residences

Neighborhood: Magnolia

Completion Date: 2015

Building Type: Duplex + SF

# Units: 3

The West Government Way residences are located just blocks away from the entrance to Discovery Park in Magnolia. The project consists of a single-family home facing the street and a duplex located behind looking out over the Kiwanis Memorial Preserve Park to the north.

Two private garages and one surface parking space are accessed from the alley adjacent to the east of the site. The pedestrian experience is separated from the driving surfaces with a path running along the west property line connecting the street to the rear duplex entries and the large backyard adjacent to the park. The pedestrian path is detailed with natural wood siding and pops of color call out each individual entry.

The massing is designed to fit into the context of the neighborhood by providing a partially below-grade story and shed roof at the single-family house facing the street. Penthouses are provided at the duplex units to maximize access to light and air.

Decks are located at multiple levels at the single-family house and all units have access to private roof decks with views to out to the surrounding parks and greenery.
