Kuehn's Way Affordable Housing

Kuehn's Way Affordable Housing

Martha's Vineyard | Tisbury, MA

The Kuehn’s Way Affordable Housing project consists of 22 duplex-style apartments on a 15-acre site on Martha’s Vineyard, and is the largest affordable housing project executed on the island to date. The design approach is focused on the fundamental belief that housing should create healthy, pleasant, and sustainable homes for individuals and families at all levels of income. These residences will afford a dignified and enriched experience for the residents while being sustainably designed and sensitive to the existing neighborhood and the impact that the project will have on the island’s landscape. 

All units have access to a mix of shared and private landscape areas on the site that revolve around “Vineyard boardwalks” that serve as the connective paths from the parking areas to the duplex pairs. Within each duplex pair is a combination of one, two, and/or three bedroom units that are based on a refined base parti layout of spaces. This allows for repetition of construction to keep costs down, but a variation of overall composition that establishes individual identity for each occupant. The project is planned to achieve ENERGY STAR Tier 3 performance requirements.
