Located in the village of Stafford, Connecticut, Borough School was built in 1922 in the Neo-Classical Revival style and is listed in the State Register of Historic Places. The building was used as a school until its closing in 2007. This project proposes to rehabilitate the property into twenty-two affordable housing units for deaf seniors to maintain their independent lifestyle. The conversion includes adapting the existing building to meet current ADA standards, requiring the installation of a new elevator. This project will give seniors access to housing in a residential neighborhood, where they can enjoy shared activities in common spaces. Community amenities consist of a fitness room and a technology center, as well as office space and a conference room distributed across three levels.
