Hycohen is a 210-unit development on the south side of Houston, Texas. There are seven residential buildings, a loose-fitting grid that sandwich a meandering sequence of shared amenities including a community building, a central pond, and a dog park and run. In each building, one- and two-bedroom units combine to form three legible volumes, all tied together from one end by a playful roofscape. Enmeshed within a rich landscape of native trees and grasses, the otherwise identical buildings are occasionally rotated within the grid yet painted on each side relative to orientation—warm in tone if viewing north, cool if south—lending variety and interest while instilling a sense of orientation and place.
