[+] BRUSH PARK A+B PARCELS
LOCATION: BRUSH PARK, DETROIT
AWARD: 2016 CONGRESS OF NEW URBANISM GRAND PRIZE, 2016 MICHIGAN SOCIETY OF LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTS MERIT AWARD
Along with creating the Brush Park Masterplan for Parcels A and B, HAA is also responsible for the design of three key buildings-- two apartment buildings and a three-unit townhome building totaling in 126 units. The two mixed-use apartment buildings contribute to an active streetfront with ground floor retail. Nestled between two renovated historic brush Park homes, the townhomes offer modern amenities in a uniquely scaled historic location. Throughout the design of these three distinct projects, careful consideration was given to the relationship of mass, form, and proportion to respect the character of the existing surrounding architecture. While sensitive to its historic neighbors, this ground-breaking neighborhood builds on Detroit’s innovative ethos and proposes a new model for contemporary development in the city.
