    Irvington Terrace

MVE & Partners co-founder Ernesto M. Vasquez says every architect should be required to spend some time as a planning commissioner or a county commissioner. “It reminds you that you’re creating community,” he says. That’s the key to the success of Irvington Terrace, the affordable rental component of a mixed-use master plan community. Simple forms reduced costs, and color boosted curb appeal. An interior courtyard provides breathability and safe open spaces for children’s play areas.
