The ID_ID Houses

The ID_ID Houses redefine urban communal living around the small-scale neighborhood community. Every apartment features a direct access to a garden space shared with two or three other units, a private front door accessible from the street, as well as a private outdoor patio.

The site itself is porous; open to the sidewalk in several places and completely open through the center East-West axis, integrating the existing Bronx neighborhood and the ID_ID Houses.

From the street, the massing is legibly residential, with the units articulated at a domestic scale. However, any individual unit within the conglomerate cannot be identified from the outside, giving autonomy to each resident; a private means to know how to navigate from the sidewalk, through the site, and to their front door.

The residents of the ID_ID Houses decide their level of engagement with their neighborhood when and how they desire it, fostering a dignifying community where individuals are the stakeholders defining the nature and character of the collective.
