Beacon Green

Seattle, WA

Beacon Green Townhomes is the first courtyard townhome project designed using Seattle's new Multi-Family zoning code.

The courtyard brings natural light into the center of the project, provides a large commons for all of the residents, and provides a gracious means of accessing the units in the rear of the site.

The visual impact of the automobile is greatly reduced, and the amount of open space is more than doubled compared to a conventional townhouse.

The project fits six units onto what is typically a 4 unit site, providing smaller, more affordable units than a conventional townhouse project.

Some garage levels are flexibly configured to allow the alternative of a full size garage, a Smart car garage with one bedroom, or no garage and two bedrooms. The sales offering will market these units with a Smart car included.
