Mother’s Tower’ is a custom four story project that is designed with the goal of creating the opportunity for vertical living, while still allowing for accessibility and aging in place. The lot is challenging, in that it is only 12’-0” wide. The first floor will be close to grade for accessibility and the design will include a residential elevator as well as stairs to access all levels of the house. There is a small rear yard, as well as pilot house access to a roof deck for container gardening. The design also includes a balcony off the third floor deck which will allow for views of the street and over the rooftops in the area.
