Projects in Progress

New Home for Doro Development, Cheshire CT
A key for this project was securing a Variance from Cheshire ZBA to allow a coverage increase from 10% to 16%. The property was a pre-existing 0.44AC site when the Zone was changed to 1 Acre zoning. This would have limited the first floor area to 1750GSF, which after a 2 car garage, would leave only 1100SF for living space – much too small to be marketable. With the approved variance, HSA Architects was able to design a ground floor plan with a Master bedroom suite along with a Living room, dining room, kitchen, laundry, guest lavatory and two story entry foyer.

Adaptive Re-use Projects 67 Trumbull & 399 Orange Streets, New Haven CT
Two buildings that had been used for decades as Office occupancies are being converted to Residential Units. HSA Architects was able meet the Building Code requirements by implementing alternative features – acceptable to both the Building Officials and Fire Marshal - which saved the owner of these buildings about $100,000 in construction costs on EACH of their renovations.
