The Didion

Sacramento, California

The Didion features 12 condo units with living and bedroom spaces free of partitions that allow one space to flow into another. The sense of spaciousness is achieved with high ceilings and large windows that open to an east-facing balcony that runs the full length of the unit.

Residents will take advantage of the best of Sacramento climate designed to allow dining in the shade on summer evenings and to take advantage of the characteristic southwestern Delta breezes.

This project weaves together the urban fabric of J Street by maximizing the potential of a former parking lot site. The small 40 x 160 lot accommodates a production bakery, twelve residential lofts and four parking stalls.

The four-story mixed-use building’s architecture is restrained and simplistic as a punctuation in a block consisting of single-story industrial structures, two-story Craftsman buildings and a Mid-century modern office.
