Habitat for Humanity
Single and Multi-Family Housing
Habitat for Humanity requested assistance with the design and development of several single family residences for low-income families in the city of Long Beach, CA. These houses reflected a "Craftsman" style aesthetic that was prominent in the surrounding neighborhood.
In additon, we provided assistance with a multi-family residential project that consisted of several townhouse units.
El Nino Feliz Orphanage
We were asked to participate in the design and coordination of a multi-residential orphanage for a non-profit organization.
The solution revolved around a central courtyard which clustered five two-story buildings housing sixteen occupants in each structure. The solution also employed a modular building construction technique which would pre-fabricate the structures off-site and deliver them to the property for placement.
The site plan also provided a basketball court, a vegetable garden, a fish farm, arts and crafts store and a perimeter food stand which would generate another source of revenue.
