DTW Architects worked with the Durham Housing Authority on this renovation of some 17 apartment buildings and 102 total affordable housing units. A total of 105,400 square feet were outfitted with new HVAC, plumbing, and electrical systems and repairs were made to the existing structure. The interiors saw new finishes and cabinets and the exterior renovations included replacing the existing roof, windows, fiber cement paneling, and building insulation. Site improvements included a new community garden, landscaping, dumpster screening, storm water improvements, and handicapped parking.
A new 2,000 square foot community building was sited in the middle of the campus and includes a community meeting & event space, laundry, and operational facilities.
