Project Overview

DREAM Collaborative was commission by JPNDC to design 8 units of affordable homeownership housing spanning several parcels purchased from MassDOT. The design features an efficient, contemporary layout with select traditional exterior details that complement the existing neighborhood context. The design team is taking advantage of the wood-frame construction style to study alternative construction methods such as prefabricated wall systems. JPNDC will also use this project to introduce a new model with two upper-floor ownership units each include a first floor investment rental unit.

The project is currently in Construction Administration.

A MESSAGE FROM DREAM

Moving Forward in the Age of COVID-19

During these times of extraordinary disruption, DREAM Collaborative remains steadfast in our belief that architecture should work toward the Greater Good. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, lines have been blurred and we’re seeing opportunities all around us to reimagine the way we live, work, and organize our society and our spaces. We are honored to play a part in the transition toward a renewed society that prioritizes well-being, equity, and innovation.

As partners, we’re bringing our curiosity and the diversity of our perspectives to conversations about how design and development will need to evolve in a post-COVID world. We’re convening panel discussions and reaching out to other minority and women-owned businesses to brainstorm solutions to the unique and compounded challenges we face. Most importantly, we’re committed to providing the highest level of service and support to our valued clients and partners in the community, who we know are also being pushed to the limits of their resources and ingenuity in order to thrive in this historic moment.
