Project: Wright Street Apartments
Location: Tacoma, Washington
Client: Tacoma Housing Authority
Scope: Exterior, Interior, Roof Renovation
Completed: 2011

Funded by a $4 million grant, the Tacoma Housing Authority chose nine of their properties to receive greatly needed repairs and updates. The age of the targeted buildings ranged as far back as the 1960's, with most having received only limited repair since their construction.

Many of the properties received extensive exterior renovations, as well as interior remodels and site improvements at select locations. Damage to be repaired included envelope repair from water penetration and interior water damage from old and neglected piping systems.

Three properties received a complete exterior redesign.  The new designs looked to the immediate neighborhood for inspiration, seeking to integrate the larger buildings more seamlessly into their locations.
