Back of the Yards Affordable Housing

JGMA as Architects

The Casa Nayarit 1 is a social housing development located in the Back of the Yards Neighborhood on Chicago’s southwest side. The project consists of two separate three story buildings containing (4) one bedroom units, (29) two bedroom units and (10) three bedroom units.


The development aims to be a catalyst for growth and development in the surrounding area through quality and social conscious design. The housing development is an assemblage of organic and colorful materials bringing a vibrancy to the existing street-scape. Along with light glass entrances at the corners, the building articulates its interior program with a series of colored and protruding apertures.


The increased density in this development, will help transform the neighborhood creating pedestrian traffic and a better sense of community.
