Building B was a single story, concrete structure with a loading dockalong its north elevation, and a concrete sub-structure along the southelevation. Most of the original structure remains, but new structure was addedfor the Second Floor, adding additional residential units, and to stabilize therenovated shell. Each unit has a mezzanine "Loft" level, providingadditional space, views and living amenities. A central corridor provides asense of community provides a location for the complex’s mailboxes and connectsthe elevator to Buildings A & C.

The building was opened up to allow daylight deep into the new units, usinglarge windows that slide open to provide natural breezes. The loading Dockswere subdivided to provide patios for the first floor units, with balconiesproviding the same amenities for the second floor units. The patio walls arecomposed of materials reclaimed from the renovated existing structure. TheBalconies have additional shading elements, mitigating heat gain for thebalconies and the units.

The lower levels was designed for living and entertaining, with the loft areafor sleeping. Stacked cores added to the efficiency of the space. The subbuilding was designed as mother in-law/studio rental/guest loft/second bedroomunits. The space between is a patio. The designs I was involved with included aroof top entertainment deck, which was cut from the final design.
