Project Statement

Hudson Village is a high-rise affordable housing community featuring a striking contemporary design and luxurious amenities located in downtown Hollywood, Fla., a beach town between Miami and Fort Lauderdale. It was built with three goals in mind:

  • To create much-needed affordable housing in one of the most cost-burdened markets in the country;
  • Upend conventional notions about what affordable housing communities can be; and
  • Help the city of Hollywood achieve its goals of creating a vibrant, walkable downtown through streetscape enhancement.

The city was a vital partner in the planning/design, and residents were behind the development from its earliest stages.

Hudson’s contemporary architecture and luxurious finishes defy expectations and create a welcoming landmark on the edge of the city’s central building district. The building is cantilevered over an arcade-style sidewalk that creates shade and offers views into the building’s lobby interiors. Aluminum louvers that look like natural wood provide a sophisticated articulation that wraps around the building, concealing the property’s three-story parking podium and generating unique views from different angles. Concrete, stucco, glass, green walls, aluminum cladding/louvers and aluminum-mesh screen railings for the apartment balconies reinforce the contemporary design.

Drawing inspiration from the avant-garde architecture, the interior design team utilized a variety of techniques to manipulate three-dimensional space and create movement in the common areas. One of the most dramatic features of the lobby is a luxurious sectional couch against a black wall that uses back-lit LED lighting to create a “light-box” illusion of a series of gold, organically shaped monoliths. Materials — such as terrazzo-like porcelain flooring, geometric-patterned tiles, metal grillwork space dividers, seamless wallpaper, and LED lighting that runs along both ceiling and wall planes — all contribute to the dynamic, multi-dimensional effect. A custom-designed Murano glass sculpture adds a final luxurious touch to the main lobby.
