As we meet new clients and stay in touch with old ones, our goal is not only to build individual relationships, but to deepen our connections with our community. Or communities, plural – our office is in a small village within a large, diverse city, with ongoing opportunities to connect meaningfully in a variety of realms. Here are some community projects our team enjoyed working on.
Habitat Morse Street
Eight new three and four bedroom units are constructed on two vacant lots in North Philadelphia. All street elevations are clad in red brick with brown accent stripes and pre-cast concrete lintels and sills, compatible with the older brick row houses in the neighborhood. Ease of construction and an energy-efficient envelope were two of the primary design considerations. Habitat’s own staff worked alongside volunteer labor to complete the construction.
