Merge’s MassCEC Triple Decker Design Challenge winning proposal, The Back Stack, made an appearance within the Boston Globe’s article entitled ‘Triple-deckers can rise again for the 21st century’. The article positions the iconic New England type as an ideal candidate for rehabilitation to increase the supply of needed affordable, energy-efficient housing in the Boston area. Merge’s Back Stack proposal aligns with this goal, comprising the addition of a vertically-oriented residential unit and a deep energy retrofit of a typical triple decker.
