Independence Library and Apartments
The residential section includes 44 apartments for individuals that are over the age of 62, with 30 units for public housing and 14 affordable units. Each apartment stands out thanks to the eight custom Valflon® colors, supplied by Sherwin-Williams Coil Coatings. A vivid hue of either bright orange, teal, purple, light blue, pink or one of two yellows is painted on every balcony, set against a light gray backdrop for them all to stand out. Each unit’s interior hallway is also coated with the same corresponding color found on the apartment balconies. These bright colors play multiple purposes: helping residents identify their unit and standing out as a vastly different aesthetic approach to past efforts in the neighborhood.
