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 Queen Lane
We designed these three-bedroom twin homes to be built as low-income family housing by Habitat for Humanity. The steep grade of the building site allowed us to incorporate a garage at street level, an uncommon feature in Habitat housing. This bonus space offers the option of conversion to extra living space, an accessible ground-floor apartment, or a small commercial space. When construction is complete in 2014, these will be homes for four low-income working families who have contributed their sweat equity to Habitat projects.
