The townhome is an architectural staple of both urban and suburban life in the United States — from the brownstones of Brooklyn to the tightly packed rowhouses of D.C. But many architectural firms have traditionally shown little interest in pursuing new townhome projects, opting instead for the “aesthetic flexibility” of designing detached single family homes. Urban planner and architect Roger Lewis joins Kojo to explore both the economic and aesthetic impact of townhome designs in urban and suburban settings, and whether the economy is making the townhome a more attractive option.
