321 West Second Street is a 15-unit condominium building located in a rapidly changing part of South Boston. A point-loaded circulation strategy was used to eliminate all common corridors at the upper levels and maximize living areas within the units. Each unit is located between two stairwells.
Entry lobbies are located on both West Second Street and Bolton Street, never serving more than six units at once. The ground floor is dedicated to structured parking and accommodates two accessible residential units along West Second Street. Above, two-bedroom units are organized around a central courtyard, allowing all units to have at least two exposures. An additional fourth floor penthouse articulates the prominent north-east facing corner.
The organizing element on the building exterior are continuous wood planter boxes. Mounted below a ribbon of windows, these define the living areas of each unit. French windows allow residents to both access the planters and open their living rooms to the street.
