Sparta, New Jersey
Area: 99,000 sq. ft
When the Sparta Ecumenical Council was formed, their first priority was to create a community that met the growing demand for senior housing. Given the historical character of the area, it was imperative that the complex was architecturally compatible with the surrounding rural lake developments. HQW’s solution drew inspired from these local communities as well as small scale Nantucket style homes. The result is a series of structures, grouped together in clusters, that provides the residents with a sense of individuality while maintaining an atmosphere of a traditional neighborhood. The complex consists of 38 buildings totaling 152 units.
