In a time where housing costs in the region are skyrocketing, and families are seeking community, Sunset Court Apartments is providing housing choices to families of diverse incomes. The Sunset Court Apartments is comprised of 50 units of mixed income housing distributed among four buildings in Renton, Washington. Our team was tasked with developing market rate and affordable housing that blend seamlessly together and help enhance the neighborhood context. The design will center the development around a central green space that will help connect the community.
A variety of units, including 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments will serve a diverse resident population. Families will have a view of the central green from their kitchen windows, which allows them to supervise their children while cooking or cleaning. Small gathering nodes along the exterior walkways and ground level pedestrian paths will allow residents to meet informally and provide informal surveillance of the site. These simple architectural gestures will help residents initiate a sense of community that will provide a pride of place.
