Smart housing is the future.
The 28th Street Apartments, restored by KoningEizenberg, showcase the of value of heritage and the balance that can be found with contemporary sustainable design. While the historic features of the building have been restored, the architects have included important social and environmental considerations inc roof is now a garden and the southern facade is covered with a photovoltaic panel.
We should expect to see great examples like this, and more dynamic forms of residential development over the coming years as social and environmental aspects of place become popularised and commodified.
