The site, on the corner of Chestnut Street and Ivy Street in downtown Branford, Connecticut, is at the crossroads of Main Street’s commercial area and a residential neighborhood. It is zoned as mixed-use. The goal was to design the best use for the site, while respecting the neighborhood’s scale and materiality.

The architecture reflects the duality of its residential and commercial uses, in its scale, material and landscape treatment. The 4,000 SF floor plan is divided into four volumes, to reduce its apparent scale. The second story houses 4 apartments, with great rooms for kitchen, dining and living located in the four cathedral-ceiling corner volumes. The bedrooms and bathrooms are in the quieter central portion of the north and south facades. The ground floor was designed as a flexible space, with possibility of multiple entrances. This is the home of FuZion, a medical aesthetic boutique.
