The Smithy – live / work housing

Maria Battista, Felicia Kiblin & Kate Martell
ARC605 | Spring 2019

The objective of the project was to create a place for seniors with the desire of making things with their hands, so that they can have a place to live and work in a closer proximity than normal situations. It was developed to work in partnership with the foundry, whose mission is to increase the neighborhood’s prosperity by empowering individuals through education and entrepreneurship.
