WHAT'S IN: innovation in emerging urban living environments


WHAT'S IN submits Hearth House in response to affordable housing

In partnership with Corcoran Jennison Associates, WHAT’S IN was pleased to submit its response for the design and development of a parcel at 24 Westminster Avenue in Roxbury (a neighborhood of Boston) as part of the Garrison Trotter Housing Innovation Competition. Our design is rooted in the longstanding tradition of community living that is the trademark of Roxbury. In the triple decker units that housed the city’s 20th century working-class families, smaller living quarters was a relatively new concept, and resources were shared among the residents. The plan presented was designed as a modern-day interpretation of the triple decker, as the city seeks yet again to find the most efficient way to house its growing population.
