cozē flats wins top project of 2014 award!
Cozē Flats brought green living and clean modern design to a new class of “micro” apartments in the heart of the city. Cozē breaks from the traditional “efficiency” apartment model by bringing high-quality design, modern amenities, and stunning views of downtown. Cozē brings all the advantages of city living at an affordable price. While the apartments may be classified as “micro,” the lifestyle is anything but.
Cozē Flats is an urban gem that fits snugly into the neighborhood. The building closely responds to the site, taking advantage of the natural slope to maximize solar gain in the apartments and maximize the parking garage layout. To make such a small site a success, the programming and massing design had to fit perfectly. Every inch of each Cozē apartment serves a purpose, and each apartment is meticulously laid out to maximize light and open space in the floorplan. Cozē uses thoughtful and clean details to open the space to light and air, and to not resort to traditional “efficiency” solutions such as Murphy beds. The full-size kitchens feature stainless appliances and high-quality granite countertops that create dual-use work/dining space. Cozē’s clean design and bright and welcoming spaces extend to its active, street-front public spaces creating a welcoming, friendly spot to come home to.
