Apartment Court – Capps

This five-unit one-story apartment building was planned as a U around a court. The front units are designed as cross-gabled cottages. Abstract half-timbering in each gable end is in the form of an X, with a porthole vent at the intersection of the members. The buildings are of wood-framed construction with brick veneer on the ground level. Built c. 1930, the complex is a sensitive solution to the problem of designing a multi-unit dwelling in a neighborhood of single-family houses.
