2055 Chestnut Street
A new mixed use development thoughtfully blends with an established neighborhood.
Stretching between Lombard Street, a busy thoroughfare, and Chestnut Street, a walkable shopping destination, this mixed use development thoughtfully responds to its surroundings. With two floors of residences set over two levels of retail–including one tucked below grade–the building meets the scale of both streets. A terra cotta facade harmonizes with the district’s cherished art deco buildings, introducing a modern take on the texture, pattern, and relief of its historic neighbors.
Daylight and views are essential to the design. A series of courtyards open up the building from within, some providing views to landscaped courtyards, while others complement the setbacks and rear yards of adjoining properties. Soaring windows and a glass-enclosed stair enhance the sense of openness and connection with the street.
