Located near Stanford University, this 17-acre master-planned community, University Terrace, is a critical part of Stanford’s efforts to expand housing. The site inhabits many Heritage trees that could not be chopped down, which required WHA to design around them.
13 plan types with 30 elevation styles with variations in Craftsman, Spanish, European, Prairie, and Contemporary.
Had to blend with existing community. The neighbors (HOA), the city of Palo Alto, and Stanford University had strong input and were part of the design process.
Height constraints - certain homes could not exceed specific heights due to nearby neighbors.
One of the most sustainable projects to date.
