Bower Commons

Columbia, SC

We interpreted the design standards for this planned development with a contemporary aesthetic and intentional passive solar design strategies, creating a mixed use building with loft residences and commercial space.

Passive solar features, such as the strategic use of balconies as solar shades, combine with active technologies, such as a high efficiency centralized water source heat pump, to ensure a high level of energy efficiency. Each residence connects to the outdoors with a private balcony or roof terrace.
