PATERSON, NEW JERSEY
A low rise 53,400 square foot apartment building comprised of 51 apartments.
Located in Paterson, New Jersey Eva's Village is a low rise apartment building that houses marginalized individuals and families wishing to re- enter mainstream society. Working with Poskanzer Skott Architects, the scale and massing of the building are in keeping with the surrounding neighborhood and the facades evoke a modern design that is meant to encourage the residents to look forward, rather than toward the past. The various scales and styles of cladding are composed as a modern painting with vertical fin-like elements that serve as visual devices to organize the material and color palette. Traditional double hung windows are employed throughout the building to unify the whole composition and underscore the residential nature of the building. The base of the building is wrapped with brick to unify the surrounding brick neighborhood and pay homage to Paterson's past history as a town of industrial mills.
