This multi-family project by repeat client Bancroft Green is a sustainable flats concept for Queens Village. Two single homes in disrepair were removed and replaced with three single-level, house-sized flats that are ideal for entertaining or families. Getting light deep into the space was the central design challenge for this green project and resulted in an open floor-plan as well as an interior courtyard that runs vertically through the core of the property. Making the most of this urban lot, on-site parking and private outdoor spaces were integrated into the rear of the units; secure bike storage is located in the courtyard, with additional unit storage in the basement.
As with all developments completed with Bancroft Green, a highly efficient envelope and systems are a given. To verify its green performance, this project was LEED for Homes Platinum certified.
