An Apple for Oxford Mills

This week, Best in American Living gives an apple to Oxford Mills of Philadelphia–our Home of the Week! The mission of the project was to create a vibrant, synergistic, education-based community of teacher housing and non-profits.

oxford2Two dilapidated warehouses were converted into 114 market-rate quality apartments that are offered to educators at discounted rates. The project includes 35,000 square feet of commercial space for over 10 different non-profit organizations, offering small office spaces for local start-ups.

A wide variety of units were designed, including studios with grand historic windows; one-bedrooms with lofts between exposed trusses; and comfortable two-bedrooms with great views, all with exposed, beautifully restored timber framing and brick.
