As a Permanent Supportive Housing project initiated by the Community Development Corporation of Brownville, Samano is a proposed housing project that re-imagines an abandoned five-story office building (approx. 6500 sqft) in downtown Brownsville with over 30 micro-affordable units for local habitants.  With the only grocery store in town having recently closed, the project tackles the prevalent “food desert” by locating a grocery store on its ground floor.  Work for the project included preparing visualizations and interior renders for client presentations as shown below.
