Intervale Green and Louis Nine House
Bronx, New York
Intervale Green and the Louis Nine House serve two separate building programs. Intervale Green is a mixed-use, seven-story, 128-unit residential apartment building for low- to moderate-income families with commercial storefronts on the ground floor. The Louis Nine House is a four-story, 46-unit supportive housing building for young adults emerging from the foster care system. Both buildings take advantage of green technology to bolster sustainability. We designed the building envelopes to reduce heat loss and air leakage and incorporated energy efficient appliances and mechanical equipment throughout. Green roofs also reduce the urban heat island effect. Working closely with our non-profit client, we facilitated a design-build roof garden at the Louis Nine House working with students from the Design Workshop at Parsons The New School for Design. Intervale Green achieved an Energy Star rating, the largest affordable housing building in the country to do so at the time of the award.
