Raising design—and living—standards for affordable housing.
Wentworth Commons didn’t just advance affordable housing—it redefined the genre entirely.
The first LEED-certified multi-unit residential building in the Midwest, the brightly colored, fifty-one unit structure is a celebration of innovative, sustainable design, housing equity and social impact.
Since its opening, it has raised—and answered—critical questions about what affordable housing can and should be: what it looks like. How it functions. And how its transformative impact might be deepened and replicated.
