HKS Explores COVID-19's Effect on Multifamily Design  

Four HKS Architects staffers teamed up to write "How Design Will Shift to Accommodate Post-COVID-19 Multifamily Living," posted on the firm’s website. They point out that while single-family homeowners have more leeway to adapt their homes to new spatial needs dropped on us so suddenly by COVID-19, many apartment tenants feel boxed in by intractable surroundings. The article explores balcony variety, mudrooms, hidden spaces, flexible workspaces, and access to light and air for home offices of the future, and presents some case study drawings that put these concepts to work.
