This 20-unit apartment building project (never built), was written up in Arts & Architecture Magazine alongside the Case Study House program, but was not part of it. The "Garden Apartments" as they were described, were a series of townhouse-style apartments, each opening onto their own private garden space, with windows looking onto the garden and shared walkway. Garages for each of the units were on the adjoining lot, with studio apartments with large decks on the second floor. The design allowed for each apartment to have it's own outdoor space, but windows and walls were sited such that privacy was of utmost importance, and each unit only overlooked their own private garden patio.
