Bagley Lofts bridges the gap. Located at the intersection of a commercial corridor and a single-family residential street, the building transitions between these juxtaposed uses with increased sidewalk setbacks, landscaping and semi-private outdoor spaces.
Respecting the existing single-family scale meant departing from the typical podium massing encouraged by zoning codes. The parking garage is wrapped with grade related townhomes on two sides, hiding an eyesore while gracefully transitioning to the adjacent, single-family neighborhood. A variety of landscaped open space acts as a buffer from the public, while providing outdoor living spaces for the residents. Live/work townhomes along the residential street frontage act as the transition from the commercial side to the single-family homes next door. Townhomes along the internal property line face a shared garden mews, which acts as the backyard and provides an increased setback from neighboring properties.
Above, tall, light-filled loft units with flexible spaces on multiple levels accommodate a variety of lifestyles. Interior finishes reference warehouse and loft buildings through the use of steel plates, metal frames, glue lam stair stringers, open wood shelving and troweled concrete floors.
