Lehrer Architects Affordable Housing Prototype interior with double-height living room and concrete floor

Working with a construction budget of $165 per square foot, the architecture firm accommodated three bedrooms and two bathrooms in each of the designs and sought to instill the spaces with the elements not typically associated with affordable housing. "With good, thoughtful design, this category of residences does not have to have an expected, underwhelming look," Michael Lehrer, the firm's president and founder, says. "Just call it gracious housing with emblems of luxury: ample natural light; views; generous indoor-outdoor relationships; processional spaces; and an open, trusting, and welcoming attitude to the street."
