This webinar is part of the Multifamily-Housing Academy
This webinar will explore design practices, strategies, and materials used to create cohesive multifamily housing projects and will profile three distinctive mixed-use projects:
- Frost Terrace, a transit-oriented, 100% affordable family community located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and a collaboration among Bruner/Cott, Capstone Communities and Hope Real Estate Enterprises.
- Mosso Apartments, a mixed-use development in San Francisco’s South of Market (SoMa) neighborhood, designed by SmithGroup.
The presenters will discuss the design constraints and challenges along with the opportunities distinctive to the neighborhoods and urban context specific to each project. The presentations will be followed by a moderated discussion in which the panelists will discuss how their projects address a range of issues, from community planning goals, affordability, access to shopping and transportation, open space, sustainability, and health and well-being.
Jason Forney, FAIA, , of Bruner/Cott will present on Frost Terrace, a collaborative project to transform and expand an existing run-down 19th-century home into new housing.
Bill Higgins, FAIA and Reynaldo Royo, AIA, NCARB, CDT, Assoc. DBIA, of SmithGroup will present on Mosso Apartments, a mixed-use development aimed at San Francisco’s up-and coming tech workers.
The presentations will be followed by a moderated discussion focused on how these innovative custom home projects address several key issues, including:
- Neighborhood/Context: How does the design honor the history and character of the neighborhood while enhancing opportunities for residents? How does this project contribute to the goals and needs identified by community planners?
- Sustainability: What aspects of sustainability does your project address? (energy efficiency, responsible material sourcing, water conservation and reuse, renewable energy generation, etc.) What regulatory barriers, if any, had to be overcome to implement these strategies?
- Health and Well-being: How do both features in the individual units and the project’s overall aesthetic, design, and programming promote the health and well-being of both residents and others who live, work, and play in the neighborhood? What concerns relating to COVID-19 does your project anticipate and accommodate?
