Designed by Studio Gang, Terraine will provide much-needed rental housing in San Jose, to complement the Arbor’s workspace, creating a highly sustainable, live-work neighborhood. Employing a mass timber hybrid structure, the building will target net zero carbon.
The two buildings, Arbor and Terraine — separated between their residential and workspace programming — will share resources, energy, and a public realm along the level of the street. The urban intervention will activate the neighborhood and generate a lively street life. Both Terraine and Arbor are climate responsive structures, designed to be highly sustainable and to adapt to varying environmental conditions on different sides of the site.
