Sister Lillian Murphy Community – Honor Award

This new affordable housing development breaks open perimeter block typology into four articulated masses connected by open-air circulation and multilevel landscapes. This strategy integrates and visually connects the residents to the surrounding neighborhood and creates micro-communities within the building and block.  Integrated design and supportive programming create a healthy, dynamic and supportive environment that helps build community.

“This multifamily project is handsome, variegated, and possesses a good urban presence. It addresses the needs of families living and working in the urban environment; extending the range of its impact by providing services to the broader neighborhood. Commendable performance criteria include:

  • Exceeded the 2016 Title 24 code
  • Achieved a 38% reduction from the benchmark EUI which is laudable for an affordable project”
