The Russell and Quimby Apartments at Bay Meadows
RHAA collaborated with BAR Architects and developer Wilson Meany on The Russell and Quimby Apartments within the San Mateo Bay Meadows redevelopment area. The two buildings will provide residential units targeting a range of anticipated users with outdoor courtyards programmed to meet the needs of their respective user groups. With full basement parking garages at each building, both courtyards will be entirely constructed on structure. For one building, geared towards young tech-savvy professionals looking to start a family, RHAA has designed an activated outdoor space with a pool, a spa, an outdoor club area, and a garden with small gathering spaces, fire-pits, BBQs, as well as a Petanque court, a bike storage/repair room, and an exercise area. For the other building, geared towards a more mature crowd, RHAA has designed a serene garden broken into various outdoor rooms divided by screening hedges and trees, including a “secret” spa room, as well as other seating areas and an outdoor BBQ space.
