Social Housing in Architectural Record: Teachers Village

“Why a teachers village?” According to RBH Group CEO Ron Beit, Teachers Village serves as a “tool” and “a benefit for the community” of Newark that is inspired by the teachers of Newark. One of the first communities to a pursue LEED Neighborhood Development designation by the USGBC, the project features an array of spaces that empowers Newark’s citizenry for long-term social impact. Charter schools, an early learning center, retail, and residential units alike are unified by a distinctive architectural language - both beautifully modern and fresh, while honoring the city’s existing urban fabric.
