13-unit development, Lexington, MA

Design Challenge:

Working closely with a landscape architect, take a team approach to master plan a residential community.

Assist project through the special permit approval process with the local planning board and conservation commission.


The design solution has achieved harmony with all the challenges the site could provide: severe topography, extensive wetlands, and a transitional lot between a single-family neighborhood to the north and commercial/ institutional uses to the south.

The development of two villages, one upper and one lower, has allowed us to vary the scale and density of the project while providing a solution that is in tune with this mixed streetscape.

The placement of the units will leave about two-thirds of the existing vegetation of mature woodland and will afford great views and private open space.
