AIA Pittsburgh Design Award
Sandstone Quarry Apartments
Certificate of Merit, 2020
Seeking to improve the quality of life for their residents, the Housing Authority engaged the development team to re-envision the Allegheny Dwellings Community on multiple sites over time with the goal of connecting to the surrounding community with a mixed-income development over multiple phases.
Sandstone Quarry, the first phase of development, transforms the isolated “barracks” style housing into a connected site with apartment and townhomes that take advantage of the spectacular city views opening up the site with a central park space.
The jury commented:
- Sandstone Quarry Apartments design presents a fresh vision for the mixed-income site. The reconfigured building orientation helps establish new connections and potential for vibrant community development.
