2007 Recognition for Best Urban Solution

– Cemetery Landscape, Co-Habitation Forms, Urban Mixed-Use, Community Revitalization

Atlanta has one of the largest housing markets in the country, albeit nearly all of which are single family permits. The Dekalb Corridor in particular is experiencing lively growth in the face of typically low income neighborhoods. It is time to explore integrated community revitalization and accessible strategies in urban living as part of a larger effort to revitalize Atlanta’s urban edges.

The basis of the project is a framework that views architecture as an intensified and constructed landscape connecting independent, vertical dwelling units while reinforcing a horizontal ground condition that strengthens resident’s ties to the street. A fine grain treatment of the urban fabric is contained within the siting strategy, to preserve authenticity of a site sharing an edge with a historic cemetery.
