This four unit microhousing project expands the affordable housing optionsto young adults living in Northampton who might otherwise be at risk of homelessness.  Jones Whitsett Architects designed this project in close collaboration with DIAL/SELF, a support agency assisting young adults in living independently.  Located along Locust Street in Northampton, the new building includes staff offices to support DIAL/SELF's mission. The design presents a modern take on vernacular, farmhouse architecture in keeping with the existing residential context. A grant through Northeast Solar will provide photovoltaic panels to meet the buillding's net energy needs. Due to be completed in 2019.
