DESIGN CHALLENGE

Design 47 units of affordable rental housing on a 6 acre site.

DESIGN APPROACH

The Town of Chatham sponsored a development competition for a 6 acre parcel owned by the Chatham Housing Authority. Our development team won this competition in part because of our reputation as an architectural firm that had provided designs for other similar sites blending typical New England architecture with typical Cape Cod building types and finishes. Using typical New England typologies consisting of “main house/shed/barn”, the design disguised the multi-family density within a single family form. To further achieve our goal of creating a New England community, we designed a site plan using the principles of cluster development and the New England Commons as focal points to create neighborhoods within the larger development.
