Homes "like everyone else" for returning veterans.
The Homes for Heroes project was envisioned to give veterans, who have multiple special needs, homes like everyone else. Client: Homes for Heroes Location: Tappan, NY Size: 8 One Bedroom Units Cost: $1,300,000
An inspired design will permit a level of privacy and connection to the community not easily accomplished. Each building has four independent apartments. The porches all front on a mews to encourage interaction between residents and help build a sense of community. The units have a connection to Western Highway, not directly fronting on this residential road, but not turning away either. Becoming part of the community again is sometimes a long and difficult road. Homes of our Heroes will be fully accessible. Barrier free dwelling to support services add an important component to secure a successful housing development.
