At Lincoln Place, sustainability is not emblematic but inherent. All rooms have windows, and all windows have solid wood frames and are fully operable and on opposite walls for ventilation. Therefore, cooling is not mechanical, and views are not an amenity but a right. Neighbors are addressed through discrete sub-shared spaces, not positioned invisibly or anonymously back-to-back. Security is enhanced by multiple perspectives on shared open space, and this public open space is graduated to more and more controlled private space, with each stage fostering a more intimate community.
