Groom partnered with Harborlight Homes on the Granite Street Crossing project, affordable multi-generational housing centrally located to the heart of Rockport, Massachusetts. The site has six affordable family townhouses, while 17 supportive senior living units were designed in a larger building on the opposite side of the lot from the townhouses. The character of the architecture in Rockport is traditionally comprised of small-scale buildings and features a combination of shingle and clapboard siding with pitched roofs and simple double-hung windows. The exterior design for the senior facility features shingled walls, double-hung windows, and pitched roofs. For visual interest, a panel and batten system decorates the gables. The goal was to largely recede into its surroundings while having visual appeal and add senior housing to the town.
