A critical factor in successful and sustainable affordable housing is the balance between design aesthetics and long term maintenance issues associated with the final product for the residents. At SWBR, we value solutions that work within the budget first and result in sustainable designs that are inspiring, functional, durable, interesting and intimately connected to the living spaces we are providing. We work hard to interpret the need and then develop a great design that is both approvable and fundable. This is our top priority.
We have designed and renovated thousands of units of affordable housing. Working successfully with agencies in New York State, including NYS HCR, NYS OMH, NYS DOH, OTDA, HHAP, OPWDD, and HUD and have designed many stand-alone LIHTC tax credit projects and combination LIHTC and HUD 202 financed projects. We understand the complexities involved in affordable housing design and funding, and bring this experience to the table for all of our projects, resulting in successful projects for our clients.
