Multifamily Housing, *On the Boards

Aldrich Apartments

Situated along main traffic fare in a commercial area of Kansas City, the Aldrich Multifamily project provides affordable housing in an area where it is desperately needed. Geared toward families, the design balances the high density needs with the necessity for varied outdoor spaces.

BVH’s design approach placed several park like areas integrated into the housing unit. Understanding the need for recreation, community and reflection, outdoor space provides amenities necessary for a healthy and dignified housing environment. Although the solution provides a lot of housing capacity with 181 units, the scale is diminished by the thoughtful use of material changes consistent with the massing of the building.

Outdoor amenities include lounge/common areas, fire pits, pet spaces, kids’ play area, garden/walking path, and community garden.
