DESIGN CHALLENGE

Design a 22 unit affordable housing development on 5 acres using single family and duplex building types for the 55+ age group with master bedroom suites on the first floor along with a 2 car garage.

DESIGN APPROACH

This housing type has a wide footprint due to the inclusion of a master bedroom suite and garage on the first floor. With such a large “footprint” the one story building had a large roofline and attic area. We were able to take advantage of this feature and locate 2 additional bedrooms in the “attic area of the building through the use of shed and gable dormers. The resulting buildings have a one story eave line and create a single family image for this multifamily housing. We also designed the buildings using typical in New England style detailing – such as front porches, Gables, varied siding materials, etc. The design of this project was instrumental in helping our client receive the necessary zoning approvals for this affordable housing development.
