Project Description

Hollyhock is an urban infill project located in the Arcadia neighborhood in the foothills of Camelback Mountain, a prestigious area with notable homes by Frank Lloyd Wright and Al Beadle. The small density development provides 11 dwelling units with private gardens in one- and two-story apartments on a half-acre site. Outdoor commons, with benches and desert walkways, barbecue and deck areas and shaded parking are also included in the project. The 12,965 sf project is designed to weave into the existing neighborhood fabric with an economical construction approach to ensure the units will be attainable for many area residents. Unit sizes range from 700 to 1,280 square feet and are designed to accommodate young and mature professionals. The design takes its cues from the vernacular ranch house with a roof that orients the ridge to the building corners. The material palette includes glass in aluminum frames, exterior insulated finish system (EIFS), galvanized corrugated metal, kebonized natural wood, membrane roofing and exposed concrete floors. The new buildings are designed for energy efficiency and low water use while taking advantage of the region’s sunlight and prevailing breezes to boost comfort and reduce operating costs. Sustainable features include a high performance building envelope. Also included are Energy Star lighting and appliances, low water use fixtures, xeric and low water use landscaping.
