Bringing nature to city living

It’s not wilderness, but it’s not concrete either. Briefly mentioned in the previous entry, this next phase of the highly successful Albuquerque High Lofts, the BelVedere, will feature 54 residences, each gifted with a doorway leading into a courtyard.

Courtyard homes have a deep Mediterranean and Southwest tradition in the area (more tomorrow on courtyard housing), which is largely a response to the hot, dry climate, but have been largely ignored in favor of air conditioning. Thankfully, the spirit of urban social interaction and city living is returning, and thus so are these courtyards.

Find out how enthused Albuquerque High Loft’s residents are about the growing sense of community and convenience to entertainment here – and how relatively affordable it is, highlighted in yesterday’s entry.
