Provide complete interior and exterior modernization of existing 144 unit apartment complex with occupied units.


Mashpee Village was built in the 1980s and was in need of significant upgrade. We were selected as Project Architect for this renovation/modernization project because of our on-going work with renovation and building modernization work. Phase 1 involved the complete modernization of the building exterior – including removal and replacing of siding, roofing and windows. We recommended use of cementitious siding in lieu of typical cedar clapboards and shingles to provide long term sustainability and protection against the Cape Cod weather. We also recommended use of a variety of siding types and colors to break down the scale of the development and increase the sense of individual housing units.

Phase 2 included two basic components. The site had an out-dated and undersized on-site septic system that needed to be completely replaced with a new state-of-the-art septic treatment plant costing nearly $3,000,000. We provided construction administration for this work. The project also included the complete renovation of kitchens, bathrooms and finishes along with the creation of 6 units of handicap accessible housing. This work required both architectural skills plus an ability to administer construction work in occupied housing units. As such, we provided as much management services as we did architectural ones. This skill is essential to an architect working in occupied housing units.
