SUNNYSIDE GARDENS

How do we modify a landmark?

Inspired by Ebeneezer Howard’s dream of a garden city, Sunnyside Gardens is unique and innovative. Working class townhomes are organized around courts that featured communal lawns, a symbol of prosperity. Over time this landscape has changed significantly. New tasks to confront are climate change and aging occupants:

  • how to reconcile an original vision with contemporary needs
  • how to accommodate flexible living arrangements
  • how to create an accessible entrance in a historic setting
  • how to add sustainable infrastructure to historic building
