Scott's Grove

Martha's Vineyard, MA

This Island Housing Trust project provides much needed workforce housing on Martha’s Vineyard. Working together with builders and architects from the first brainstorming session was critical for the design of this environmentally and budget sensitive development.


The landscape goals of this sustainable development was to limit disturbance and removal of large trees, enhance native landscape character, and to provide units with private outdoor spaces as well as shared decks for community gathering. A strict no-touch zone was established during construction to ensure the preservation of landscape. The wood decks that connect units are a light touch on the landscape and provide accessible entries for all units.
