Over the years, many of our efforts in the field of urban redevelopment have involved the design of market-rate and affordable housing. We have developed strategies for the planning and design of urban housing that enhance the quality of life for urban dwellers, owners and managers.
In our experience, housing, both public and private, succeeds best when both the design process and the built outcome match the needs of its residents. Housing should enable a sense of community and participation, and in scale and character be integrated into its neighborhood fabric, and provide a sense of security. And housing should connect to open, green space, a presence that all people need to have in their lives in order to be fully human, and which also defines a domain of belonging within a larger urban fabric.
