Housing Study Model

Process—————18 March 2013

Changing demographics in the Washington, DC metro area mean changing paradigms for multi-unit housing. This study model explores how individual two story housing units can be arranged on a site to create shared common areas of various degrees of privacy. While the efficiencies of this approach have been well known since Le Corbusier's Unite' d'Habitation was built in the 1940s, this design can also help strengthen a sense of community. The shared common areas provide additional opportunities for residents to meet and interact with their neighbors. Studio Twenty Seven Architecture has been approached by an innovative developer currently studying this approach as a means to provide more attractive and affordable dwelling units than those currently found in the region.
