531 Classon Ave is a small, 8-apartment residential building. The building fits in an interior lot between a large-size deeply recessed apartment building and an old church that is right at the property line. Design attention was given to outdoor space and the relationship between the building and the street. All facade elements such as the canopy, porches, balconies, and terraces are expressed monolithically with a unifying white frame. The intention is for the building to appear as a 3-dimensional extension of the next-door residential building, bridging it, via the street recess level, to the non-recessed church, like an unfolding accordion.
