the taupe towns

The Taupe Towns is a sustainable development project composed of 5 single-family townhomes designed by AVLV. These townhomes feature a unique balance of asymmetry, juxtaposition, and splitting that make the facades truly unique yet unified as a whole. Each townhome comes standard with a solar pergola, rooftop garden, rain garden, and other sustainable features.

Not only do the rain gardens enhance the curb appeal of these townhomes, but they also help to retain stormwater runoff from the sidewalk and street via curb cuts. The solar pergolas are a perfect way to have solar panels on your roof deck while also fully utilizing and enjoying your outdoor space at the same time.

In accordance with Philadelphia zoning requirements, there is a 5-foot setback at the front of each roof deck. The Taupe Towns have a solution for this: a rooftop garden that provides an occupiable space and an additional green feature to this eco-friendly development project.
