THE TRUMAN is a new mixed-use building in the Hawthorne Neighborhood. Inspired by Edward Lutyens' Page Street Housing in London, the facade uses common inexpensive materials to create a strong and recognizable pattern. The building massing is broken into four blocks to allow views and light to penetrate deep into the building. A single flexible ground floor retail space faces SE Hawthorne Blvd and can be divided into as many as four separate tenant spaces. Large folding doors connect the retail space to a beautiful south facing courtyard at the back of the building. Thirty residential units are located on the top three floors, and each unit is outfitted with large sliding panels to allow a simple open plan while providing complete privacy for the bedroom.
