Urban Architecture Missing Middle Housing

West Village: Creating a Community on a Greyfield Site

Florence, AL

This site is a 13 acre site that was the former home of a hospital. The master plan and types we designed for this project create a mixed-use neighborhood within a walk or short bike to downtown.  The neighborhood orients around a neighborhood main street and plaza, and introduces a broad range of housing types and prices points. In this project we evolved our Mews Homes type to orient around community-fostering courtyards and Prairie style architecture, both informed by a nearby Frank Lloyd Wright home. The main street type has apartments on the upper floors and ground floor flex spaces to accommodate small local businesses.
