We’ll stick with green affordable housing projects in Brooklyn today and note
In addition to co-developing the project with ET Partners, Brooklyn-based Della Valle Bernheimer Architects designed two of the buildings and directed Architecture Research Office (“ARO”), BriggsKnowles Architecture + Design, and Lewis.Tsurumaki.Lewis, as they designed one building each. Della Valle’s proposal for the complex included common materials for each building’s design- 90% recycled corrugated aluminum siding, fiber cement panels, and renewable cedar siding. According to Dwell, the entire complex was built for $108 per square foot, and also includes energy-efficient appliances and extensive site landscaping. Over 2,200 applicants sought to purchase the homes, each of which includes a smaller second downstairs unit designed to be rented out and help offset mortgage costs.
