INHS Enterprise Rose Fellowship

Facilitating an inclusive, sustainable approach to developing affordable communities.

The Enterprise Rose Fellowship was founded by Enterprise Community Partners in 2000 to partner emerging architectural designers and socially-engaged arts and cultural practitioners with local community development organizations to facilitate an inclusive approach to development that results in green, sustainable, and affordable communities. Fellows integrate design processes, community engagement principles, and creativity into development projects.

In 2018, INHS was selected as one of only a handful of organizations across the country to host a 2019-2020 Rose Fellow within its Real Estate Development department in order to benefit from the support of in-house emerging architect.

A graduate of University of Maryland’s School of Architecture, Planning & Preservation, Chau comes to INHS from Washington, DC where she was a project architect, Chau worked on schematic design, design development, and construction administration helping the firm to bring several mixed-used developments to fruition.
