Appropriate new construction is one of the toughest design challenges facing San Antonio's local historic districts. In 2017, OHP kicked off a public discussion regarding infill design at the Historic Homeowner Fair Infill Design Workshop. Over 80 people attended the discussion and heard from a panel of design and development professionals.
For discussion purposes, local firm Alamo Architects has provided conceptual massing studies for four vacant lots. For each location, multiple scenarios illustrating various densities, development patterns, and building types have been provided for public comment. The conceptual studies can be viewed using the links below:
The conversation will continue as OHP staff works to develop a potential design manual or additional guidelines related to historic infill. Stay tuned for the announcement of future meetings and opportunities to provide input.
