DSA designs for all budgets and lifestyles:
Affordable multi-family housing can be inviting, inspiring and sustainable.
The Laurel Apartments: Water conserving landscaping and a zero-runoff water-permiable parking surface contributed to the environmentally friendly program of this 10-unit affordable apartment complex. The contemporary minimalist design provides a flat roof concealing a large expanse of roof-top solar panels. The compact site also features private and group garden areas and a playground.
Spaces that fit.  DSA specializes in  
creating comfortable spaces that fit  
your needs and lifestyle.  The Birdrock  
Addition & Remodel is a complete  
rebuild of a 1940's bungalow which  
added about 2000 square feet to the  
property while preserving the  
unassuming scale of the house exterior.  
A restrained handling of the interior  
fostered spaces that were personal and  
intimate in scale.
With a loose interpretation of casual  
Eastern Seaboard style, the project  
stretched across it's deep and narrow  
lot to include a new expansive kitchen  
with a vaulted dining nook (shown right),  
a new family room, master suite and  
guest room. At the the alley to the rear  
of the lot,  a detached garage was  
reoriented for better automobile access  
while receiving a new upstairs guest  
quarters.  
The owner's desire for steep roofs led to  
the inclusion of vaulted ceilings  
throughout the house and even left  
enough space for a secret kid's  
playroom perched above the kitchen.
"A traditional design approach can bring modern living to older neighborhoods while supporting their
unique character."
