This urban Infill duplex is proposed for various vacant lots within the residential neighborhoods surrounding downtown Wilmington, NC. The project is an effort to infill vacant lots within the traditional inner city neighborhoods. The design is based on the traditional building form of a 1887sf “Main house” fronting the public street with a 1064sf “Carriage house” placed along the alley. The carriage house unit could be used as a rental property. The houses are finished in hard-coat stucco, Cypress screen elements, and galvanized steel tube frame terrace and sunscreen structures.
