Takoma Park Affordable


A worn out red brick apartment building in Takoma Park was in dire need of rejuvenation. While at EDG Architects, Scott Wilets worked with the client/developer Montgomery Housing Partnership as Project Architect on this extensive gut rehabilitation that included a transformative facelift. A key feature is an inventive parasol roof element that provides character and distinction to an otherwise nondescript building. All apartments in the 27 unit building were renovated and several community spaces were added, including a new Day Care Room, Resident Computer Center, and Management Office. The resulting building is cheerful and uplifting and demonstrates that affordable housing can offer good design and a positive living environment.
