Whether buying or renting, many across America are struggling to find affordable housing. Mortgage rates are at a 10-year high, construction prices tend to climb in one direction, and the planning and regulatory process to build is only getting more complex. What this means for the consumer is fewer options, more competition, and higher prices. High Point Place is just one project where F9 Productions has the opportunity to develop a multi-family residential design to meet the insatiable housing need.

Composed of 14 three-story units, the main driving factor in this design was the sun. Specifically, the goal was to ensure that all units have sufficient solar access and natural light, which are critical to human health and happiness. To achieve this, all fourteen units are oriented so that the living spaces and primary bedrooms face south. In addition, spacious balconies are provided on the south side of both the living and sleeping levels so that access to the outdoors is always just a step away.

As with most attainable multi-family projects, efficiency is critical. That is, efficiency in terms of constructability, footprint, and spatial arrangement. Consequently, High Point Place offers economical three-bedroom and four-bedroom units in order to maximize usability and residential density. Each unit is approximately 1,400 SF and minimizes wasted space that is often dedicated to circulation, such as in hallways.

The ground level of each unit is provided with a two-car garage, a bathroom, and bedroom that can be converted to a home office, which has become a significant selling point, especially for younger generations that are in many cases seeing “working from home” becoming more of an option. 

As we move upstairs, an open-concept kitchen, living and dining area await. This centrally-located floor is the heart of the home. While the living room is the southernmost space, natural light warms the entire length of these units due to their compact layout and additional ambient light from the north-side windows.

Finally, the third floor contains the unit’s bedrooms, or two bedrooms and one office in the case of the three-bedroom units. In addition to the bedrooms is a spacious walk-in laundry room, which is centrally located for ease of access to all.
