E+ // 226 – 232 Highland consists of four three-story wood-frame townhomes in the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston, MA. Located in the historic Fort Hill area, a diverse community with an eclectic urban fabric, the project is sited on a formerly vacant city-owned site occupying a prominent corner which overlooks a large neighborhood park and playground. A short walk to mass transit and public amenities at the Jackson Square MBTA stop, the project encourages a walkable urban lifestyle, contributing to the rich history and social fabric of the neighborhood with an affordable, sustainable, and context-sensitive contemporary design.
The project was conceived as a replicable prototype for family-friendly, energy-efficient, urban townhomes. Each unit is approximately 1850 SF, with flexible living areas, 3 bedrooms, and 2.5 bathrooms. First floor living spaces include living and dining areas separated by an open kitchen, a powder room, and a generous rear deck and backyard. Each second level accommodates two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a study nook. Each third floor features an expansive master bedroom with 17-foot ceilings, an en suite bathroom, and a private rear deck.
The project was the first completed under the City of Boston’s Energy Plus (E+) Green Building Program, a pilot initiative to develop energy-positive sustainable housing. The project team was chosen through a design competition organized by the Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) and the Department of Neighborhood Development.
