How do we protect a community?
A group of unusual beach bungalow blocks with pedestrian only access are rehabilitated after being inundated during Hurricane Sandy. The work involves a mix of preservation and new construction supported by government funding with the following objectives:
- how to preserve multi-generational workforce housing
- how to plan for resiliency at the scale of a community
- how to respect the historic scale of a neighborhood
The Courts of Sheepshead Bay received a Commendation for Resilience from AIA Brooklyn in 2022
