AIA Housing Committee Habitat Build Day
On Saturday, October 19 eight intern architects, architects and a builder participated in the AIA Housing Committee's Annual Habitat Build Day. The volunteers put in a full day at Habitat's Oxford Street townhouses, which are underway in the Sharswood neighborhood in northwest Philadelphia. Volunteers included Robyn Savacool, Nicholas Connolly, Kelsey Ross, Maria Ross, Tiffany Rolfing, Caroline Bozzi, Arthur Loree and Scott Burroughs. Sponsoring firms make a financial contribution and included Cecil Baker & Partners, Bernardon Architects, Idea Broker Builders, WRT, JKRP Architects and marshall/sabatini Architects. When completed, each townhouse will be sold with a zero interest mortgage to a Habitat Partner family that has completed Habitat's sweat equity and orientation program.
