Housing Aggregate by Nate Albers

This project focused on unit aggregation strategies for a housing block in southeast Austin. Public rooms (living, kitchen, garden) swell as the units approach the river and park to the north, taking over space allotted for private rooms. This strategy offers residents a range of sharedness to choose from while making communal living and shared amenities more desirable. The pixelation created by the unit aggregation is counteracted by a rooftop garden path and a mesh wrapper that encloses the entire building.
