“SECOND + SECOND represents a successful design of a modern multi-family development that thoughtfully weaves itself into a historic district and creates a lively and material rich landscape at the streetscape and courtyard. The project filled in a former surface parking lot and brownfield site, and stitched back together a block-long stretch of the historic North Loop neighborhood. Rather than mimic the era, the design team worked to evoke a modern interpretation of the historic context through the materials selection, massing and ordering of the façade.”
