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
