16 units of affordable housing in three buildings, including site planning.
Develop a former missile launch site into an affordable housing complex with a design that is responsive to the context of the surrounding residential community. Incorporate sustainable design methods.
Architecture establishes purposeful relationships with distinct entry porches and front doors oriented toward common spaces, semi-private outdoor spaces for each home, and a variety of floor plans to allow for usability for all families. Site plan minimizes paved surfaces and places homes to take advantage of existing mature trees and respect privacy of neighbors.
All 16 units sold within months of introduction to market. Average family utility savings estimated at $900 annually compared to traditionally-built, similarly-sized homes.
