Sarah Allen Townhomes

BHA was commissioned to design twenty new modular townhomes, four duplex units, and twelve units in four existing buildings. Comprised of 50 percent of a city block, the challenge of the project was to create a new community that would blend into the surrounding neighborhood. BHA designed porches similar to the neighboring structures, and an inner courtyard for recreation and parking, thus creating exterior public space and interior private areas.
