2018 Multi-Housing News Excellence Awards

We were proud to be part of the DSF Group project team, which won a Silver award in the 2018 Multi-Housing News Excellence Awards Best Value-Add Renovation category for our Halstead Malden Square project. DMS provided architectural design services for the project, which renovated 10,000 SF of existing space in a luxury apartment building in Malden. The project branded and upgraded the space, adding a fitness center, club and lounge space, business center with private meeting pods, as well as exterior improvements to the courtyard, including an enhanced fire pit, life-sized games, luxury seating, and a bocce court. The judges found the project to be “thoughtful in colors, materials and design, instead of relying solely on construction.”

DMS enjoyed working with this family-owned business to provide architectural services, including interior and exterior architectural design, construction documents, and construction administration, to create an addition with a handicap accessible entry vestibule, two new handicap accessible bathrooms, additional seating, and office space. It was a great project to see come to fruition for the family and the devoted patrons of Fireside Restaurant. We are thrilled to see their beautiful new look is receiving such positive feedback.

On Nov. 10, DMS Design LLC participated in a ceremony at Rockridge Retirement Community, a Deaconess Abundant Life Community in Northampton. Rockridge’s expansion includes Violette’s Crossing, with 25 independent rental apartments for those of moderate income, as well as the new Gardens Neighborhood for Memory Support on the building’s first floor. DMS Design LLC senior project manager Sid Silveira joined: Rockridge executive director Beth Vettori; Joseph Haavisto from Hutter Construction; Northampton mayor David Narkewicz; president and CEO of DALC Christopher Sintros; and Rockridge board of overseers chair John Young for this event.

Violette’s Crossing will allow residents to live independently in their own apartments while eliminating the chores often associated with home ownership. It will also give the residents an opportunity to become part of a supportive community. Extensive research suggests that there is a lack of quality housing for those earning moderate incomes. The Gardens Neighborhood for Memory Support will be updated and expanded to include 24 suites on the first floor and a private, resident-accessible, secure courtyard. By adding the additional apartments in Violette’s Crossing and additional suites in the Gardens, Rockridge will provide quality housing for seniors.

“We have been working with a great team to get us to this point, and we are excited for Rockridge to incorporate this unique component to unite their campus,” Silveira said.
