Project Description

2011 RADA
Affordable / Merit

The Rosa Parks Apartments complex is far from the average affordable project, mainly because Landon Bone Baker Architects infused it with thoughtful design and user-friendly unit plans. One judge liked that it’s “very quiet and understated.” Each of the eight buildings in the project is highlighted by precast exterior walls with 6 inches of blown in fiberglass. Colorful bays animate the street, while the largest building—a four-story, 27-unit structure—features solar hot water, geothermal heating, and a heat recovery system for the kitchen and bath exhausts. It is seeking LEED Gold certification.
