the forsyth

BRIEF: The Forsyth is a multi-unit housing project with retail space on the ground floor of the main building facing Forsyth Blvd. in Clayton, Missouri, USA. There are three additional buildings to the rear of the property which are raised from the ground level which allowed for the preservation of existing trees and the cultivation of additional gardens and a retention pond which filters water runoff from the site and surrounding areas. There are three unit sizes to accommodate tenant needs. In addition, there is a gym and resistance pool in the main building. The units are composed of a ‘kit of parts,’ each containing the same ‘parts’ arranged in different configurations dependent on the unit’s particulars.  There are sliding glass doors on all the exteriors to provide access to fresh air and light as well as a set of sliding screens for shade and privacy. Tenants can alter their surroundings to their liking.
