Housing Authority Alder Street Apartments

Newport, Oregon

This multifamily housing project is sited on a steeply sloping site. It uses this challenge as an asset, terracing with the landscape rather than hovering over it. Ten units skip down the slope, each at a different level to afford views and ventilation to the units behind it. A shared central corridor allows access from the top of the slope to the bottom, with separate landings providing entry to each apartment. The building will serve low-income community members, specifically disabled veterans, with studios and one-bedroom apartments.
