Jibe Design and Naquib Hossain collaborated on the winning entry for the Philadelphia Housing Authority Sustainable Housing Competition. The project was honored with a Philadelphia AIA Award.
We created a masterplan for 32 housing units along Markoe Street in West Philadelphia. Our plan called for the renovation of the existing structures and the careful knitting of new homes into the empty lots to complete the gapped street edge. The new homes are designed to last, of durable materials with careful construction detailing. The highly insulated new homes and renovations integrate a clerestory into an efficient daylighting, heating, and cooling system.
