University Neighborhood Housing Program

Participants

Community Partner: University Neighborhood Housing Program (UNHP)
Coordinating Firms: Dattner Architects and MBB

2020 Project Scope

Dattner Architects and MBB collaborated with University Neighborhood Housing Program to create plans to update and reopen their main office in accordance with COVID-19 safety protocols.

2020-21 Goals and Outcomes

Safer Work Environment
Dattner Architects and MBB worked closely with UNHP to reconfigure their main office and accommodate a six-foot distance between employees. The team also provided guidance on how to reduce the amount of workstations in each room, implement a COVID-19 check-in station to control the flow of people in the space, and install plexiglass partitions and air purifiers.

Outdoor Gathering Space
For the Rose Hill Community Center, the team proposed a design for a cost-friendly outdoor module planter system suitable for social distancing that also serves as shaded cover.
