3-unit building addition to the existing PUD Development for Newberry Place Cohousing

This new, 3-unit building lot added 45x100 square feet of property to the existing PUD Development for Newberry Place Cohousing, the first and only development of its kind in Grand Rapids. This forward-thinking and diverse community wanted to add to its sustainably focused development and chose to work with Mathison | Mathison Architects to expand in a thoughtful and beautiful way.

The new building includes three stacked units with a shared basement. Two garaged parking spaces occupy the rear of the lot by extending the existing northeast parking area. There is also one parking space in an attached garage off Newberry Street in conformity with the universal design of that unit. All three units have access from the north and south of the site. The first floor unit is universally designed and has two bedrooms. The second floor unit has three bedrooms and is accessible by an ADA ramp from its parking spot. The third floor unit has a single bedroom and takes advantage of high clerestory windows to bring in eastern morning light.
