2023 Award Winners



Single-Family Community, Under 100 Units


Brewster Landing


Brewster, Massachusetts

Architect/Designer | Union Studio Architecture & Community Design

Developer | Cape View Development

Photographer | Nat Rea Photography

The design team worked with the developer to design a mixed-income cottage community clustered around a common green in Brewster, Mass. The building types include two carriage house units, 22 detached cottages and four cottage duplexes.

Of the 9.5-acre site, two-thirds are preserved open space. The project was developed under the Massachusetts 40B state statute for affordable housing development and is admired by the local community.

From the Judges
The consistent architecture creates a cohesive community that fits well within the region. The exteriors are adorable, especially with the color contrast of the wood shingle material, and the four-sided architecture takes all viewpoints into consideration. We love how they did green space and executed the walkability. The landscaping is well thought out, and the paver sidewalks and drives add a nice touch.
