This webinar is part of the Multifamily Housing Academy
Listen in as our presenters discuss the design constraints, challenges, as well as their solutions, for these unique multifamily projects.
Be sure to join the moderated discussion after the presentations in which the panelists will answer your questions about their projects and are available to address a variety of issues, including cost and affordability, community concerns, unit design and common space.
Brian Phillips, AIA, LEED AP is a founding Principal and Creative Director of ISA (Interface Studio Architects) and will present the XS House project in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, an affordable multifamily concept that took advantage of a leftover city lot. XS House serves as a model for inventiveness and spatial efficiency that can benefit other dense urban environments.
Kim Wilson, AIA, Quality Director at Holst, and Jake Watson, Job Captain, will present the 72Foster project in Portland, Oregon. This project relied on collaboration over many years with a nonprofit developer and a social services agency and has also become a model for the greater Portland area. 72Foster bridges affordable housing with a single-family neighborhood and a commercial corridor and in the process enhances the entire community. In addition, they will discuss Argyle Gardens, a modular affordable housing development.

- Describe two approaches used by the 72Foster project to integrate multifamily housing into the surrounding communities and businesses.
