The Project

Studio Luz is proud to showcase a housing design proposal in response to the Department of Neighborhood Development’s call for proposals for the development of a 34,415 square foot residential area on Ronald Street. Teaming up with VietAID, Inc and Codman Square NDC, we have proposed two and three story multifamily homes. The two buildings will house 58 apartments, including studios, single bedroom units, and the Senior Community Room. The Senior Community Room is a multipurpose room in which residents will be able to gather for group activities, host events, and/or open the space to the larger community.

Joining the Neighborhood

The site’s connection to the neighborhood was a crucial piece of the design process for us. Accordingly, we have organized the site around a community outdoor street space that extends the lines of Morse Street. We envision this throughway playing an important role for Ronald St residents, offering them a central public space for recreation, socializing, or an evening stroll.

Our Residential Philosophy


Ronald St. is the most recent of a series of urban residential projects that are bound together by a common philosophy. We approach the design of urban housing not as just an aggregation of unit types or even just a single building, but as enduring homes for families, groups and individuals with diverse personal lifestyles. Additionally, we believe that all of our projects must be as responsive to the environment as they are comfortable for residents. By incorporating these considerations into our designs, we seek to foster independent living with strengthened communities. The Ronald St. design has developed from this foundation of social responsibility, personal styles, respect for the historic environment, and sustainability.  We will keep you posted if our team is selected for the project — fingers crossed!
