HARVARD SENIOR HOUSING
With a shortage of affordable housing, the Harvard Housing Authority (HHA) envisioned developing a Town-owned parcel near the center of town for senior living. This study explored a full range of configurations for 12 one-bedroom units on a 1.3-acre sloping lot, from six duplexes to a single two-story building. In the end, HHA opted for two 1½-story structures that took advantage of the existing topography. Each small apartment building, with its common entry and corridors, would provide the tenants with a sense of community and safety.
