Jason Kramer Hall

Pittsburgh, PA

Services: Architecture, Interior Design.

Project Narrative: The three story "Art-Deco" inspired building is located one block from the Squirrel Hill neighborhood shopping district. The existing 10,600 square foot apartment building previously contained fifteen market rate apartments, which were renovated to form ten units for independent developmentally challenged residents. The building also underwent major exterior restoration and utility system upgrades.

A new entry lobby with an elevator provides accessibility to the entire building. A large group activity room with full cooking amenities and a laundry offer residents convenient public facilities and areas for social interaction. All units consist of one-bedroom layouts, varying in size from 500 to 600 square feet and have a full kitchen which opens to a spacious living room with dining area. Each apartment provides residents with ADA compliant features such as bathroom grab-bars, lever style hardware and accessible cabinetry.
