Coliving in Princeton, New Jersey
Design Studio
Princeton University School of Architecture

This project is composed of a layering of coactive organizational systems which produce the groundwork for a new collective live/work space. When these systems intersect, a negotiation is made between contrasting organizational schemes forming an architectural compromise.

Kidney shaped studio apartments are arranged across a ten foot column diagrid which interrupts an otherwise ordinary circulation path through the collective living room. Similarly, while the columns are not present in the units themselves, the beams above pass through the units with little to no regard for their points of intersection through the unit’s walls.
