Highland Homes at Fort Hill, Roxbury, MA

Scope
New construction
18 units

Set within the historic Fort Hill district of Roxbury, 18 units of housing occupy a sloped site that was previously considered undevelopable. To meet this challenge, Davis Square Architects designed a mix of multi-level units responsive to the contours of the land, with intermediate terraces moderating the incline and providing convenient off-street parking.

We engaged the client in the design process by using computer-generated 3D models to make complicated site options more understandable, resulting in an emerging scheme which respects the established neighborhood and enhances its natural topography.
