Charleston Apartments at Villebois

Wilsonville, OR

The Charleston Apartments sits at the heart of the developing Villebois Neighborhood and provides needed homes for the affordable housing community.

The project includes 15 apartments reserved for residents with special needs related to cognitive functions with the remaining 37 units available as affordable market rate housing. The project is defined by its ‘public’ corner which invites residents and neighbors to interact at an outdoor plaza space and extends vertically within the building by providing interior common space and exterior decks which overlook this plaza. The blend of materials and color create a playful balance of spaces and form which provide a distinction of elements while unifying the building as a whole.
