This award-winning luxury apartment building is located in a small, upscale community in the heart of Palo Alto, near Stanford University. The complex features a 3-story apartment building with 11 dwelling units, including a third-story penthouse, and a below grade podium used for parking and mechanical services.  An adjoining 2-story townhouse has two units with garages on the first level and driveways that pass over the podium.  Wright designed these structures using Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) walls and wood framed interior walls, which allowed for a much lighter and stronger structure. In a high seismic zone, such as Palo Alto, this combination significantly reduced the cost of construction.
