Award-Winning
BSA & AIA New York Chapter – Willo von Moltke Urban Design Award for the Rindge Avenue Neighborhood Restoration

Davis Square Architects designed 12 award-winning condominium units on the prominent Rindge Avenue in North Cambridge. The Boston Society of Architects recognized the firm with the Urban Design Award for the site’s contribution to the Rindge Avenue Neighborhood Restoration initiation.

The project was an opportunity to improve the public space through the provision of privately-owned affordable housing. One of the new affordable units restores an existing historic “worker’s cottage” dating back to the early 1900s while maintaining the Cambridge Historical Commission guidelines. Additional improvements provided by the client are a community child care center and expanded resident parking lots.
