Commitment to Community Spaces

Special Commendation


Part of the second phase of a comprehensive master plan to replace extremely degraded and crime-ridden public housing, this 72-unit mixed-use building was designated as the community hub and serves as the social heart of this new mixed-income neighborhood.

The jury liked the way that the simple interior space sets up a dialogue with the exterior. The lovely public amenity spaces are pushed outside toward the garden, creating a public realm within the walls of the project that feels open, welcoming, and comfortable.
