Chancellor House is a collection of terraced apartments and duplex townhomes in an eclectic West Coast Style that responds to the existing buildings, both heritage and modern. Opportunities for community building include a pedestrian mews, important for entry and parking, but the design intent was much greater; the mews takes its cue from the concept of “woonerf,” a Dutch word meaning “street for living,” a common space shared by pedestrians, bicyclists, and low-speed motor vehicles. Other characteristics of the project include terracing the building as a natural response to the terrain, extensive use of cut granite on the exterior to complement the historic Iona Building, a landscaped pond, and large outdoor spaces for every unit.
