ARCHITECTURE: Affordable Housing
Architecture Grand Prix
Judges had this to say:
“So much affordable housing is dire. This reminds us we can do better. It says you can do low-cost
housing that’s not nasty. It’s hard to do something interesting on a budget. They’ve achieved all
of that. The articulation to the Street gives it strength. A lot of people would have kept it flat. I got
excited. The hand of an architect who knows what they’re doing. An eye for detail”.
