East Falls may be defined as transitional neighborhood within the Philadelphia region. It hosts a mixed community where residential, educational and commercial areas coexist and sometimes overlap.
The architects developed a Master Plan that would host affordable housing units, within a contemporary design approach. The units were conceived as pre-fab houses.
The main idea was the notion of theme and variations. Roofs with alternating slopes, facades displaying different corrugated metals, windows of varied forms and sizes and primary colors used as orienting accents provide a unique character to the project.
