A modern loft living prototype unique to the housing stock of Sacramento. The project features units with living and bedroom spaces free of partitions that allow one space to flow into another. The sense of spaciousness is underscored by large windows that open to a balcony that runs the full length of the unit. The eastern-facing balconies allow residents to take advantage of the best of Sacramento climate designed to allow dining in the shade on summer evenings and embrace the characteristic Delta breezes.
The project seeks to stitch together the urban fabric of J Street by maximizing the potential of a former parking lot site. The small 40 x 160 lot accommodates a production bakery, twelve residential lofts, and four parking stalls. The four-story mixed-use building’s contemporary architecture adds a new texture to a block consisting of single-story industrial structures, two-story Craftsman buildings, and a Mid-century modern office.
