Our affordable and supportive housing balance aesthetics, safety, durability and sustainability. Many projects provide social services for job training, life skills training, alcohol/substance treatment and community support services. In addition to the design, we collaborate with owners, developers and non-profits on state, federal and local funding sources to provide cost-effective housing solutions that help people live more stable, productive lives.
We design beautiful and sustainable multi-family and scattered-site housing for projects that range from new construction, renovation, and adaptive-reuse to historic preservation. And, our expertise extends beyond design, we have extensive knowledge in working with funding sources including HCR Tax Credits, HFA Financing and Historic Tax Credits to assist our clients in obtaining the necessary funding to make their vision a reality.
