This inﬁll design proposes to build on Craftsman traditions by incorporating a large front and side gabled porch, multiple roof planes, tapered porch columns, and multi-pane top sashes. Quality sustainable infill housing can greatly rejuvenate residential neighborhoods by complementing the context in which it is located and restoring the original community density.
Room to Grow
Andrea Swartz, AIA
Room to Grow embraces a few key values: clear construction strategies resulting in minimalist yet innovative and delightful design, embracing innovative materials and methods to facilitate investment of industry partners, connecting design solutions with exploration of transformative affordable housing research with post-occupancy monitoring, and participatory home ownership versus a gift-wrapped solution.
Emery Hunt, Assoc. AIA
Three critical design considerations that guided the idea of 1950 Cornell Ave. were the integration of feasible passive energy solutions, an affordable and dynamic home, and enhancing the feel of the surrounding neighborhood aesthetic.
SPECIAL RECOGNITION AWARD:
This project uses the IN_fill competition as an opportunity to propose methods for connecting low to moderate income homebuyers to the home design process.
Tony Costello, FAIA
The goal of HomePLUS is for first time homebuyers to learn about the process involving the architect, financial institutions, and the homebuilder. The intent behind this submission is that the final design will not be determined until the prospective buyer or buyers participate in one or more “take part” workshops with the architect.
