Resilient Affordable House

Resilient Affordable House

Resilient Affordable House

This single-family prototype aims to address the very essential need for dignified, permanent and affordable housing. The design is comprised of renewable resources and infrastructure capable of sustaining living conditions while being off-grid for extended periods of time. Passive design strategies provide natural cross ventilation, heat extraction and shade. The design considers the use of locally manufactured structural systems, accessible materials and hurricane resistant components. Its modularity, interior distribution, and openings treatment provide adaptability for diverse locations and square footage needed.
