Residences

Currently we envision four types of residential structures. (Note that this is a somewhat changed portfolio from our spring and summer portfolio, as we get more feedback and develop our thinking on unit mix and site plan — it all connects!)

This page displays all of these structures. For the different layouts and possible living arrangements within them, please go to the Living Options page. The first two drawings are by Jonathan Lucas, What on Earth Architecture. The second two are additions/adjustments under development: rough sketches by Katy Ansardi.

 

1-story Flex House

This structure is a 2-bedroom house usually with an attached 2-room suite, all on one level. The house has two bedrooms with a shared bath in between, kitchen, dining and living rooms and half bath along with a screened porch. On the other side of the common area is the suite, with a small sitting/living area with wet bar opening into a bedroom with closet and accessible full bath. The suite has a door to the house which may or may not be used as the residents decide. The suite could also function as a master bedroom suite, making this  structure a three-bedroom house.

 

2-story Flex House

This structure is a 2-story 2-bedroom house usually with an attached 1-room suite. Upstairs the house has two bedrooms with a shared bath in between. Downstairs are kitchen, dining and living rooms, half bath, and a screened porch. On the other side of the first-floor common areas is the suite with bed area, large closet, accessible full bath, small wetbar, and screened porch. The suite has a door to the house which may or may not be used as the residents decide. The suite could also function as a master bedroom suite, making this structure a three-bedroom house.

This unit is also designed to be duplexed with a mirror-image unit sharing the wall with stairs and utility spaces. In the elevation posted here, a duplexed unit without an attached suite is shown on the left. 

 

Cottage + suite

This structure is a small 1-bedroom house with an attached 1 room suite, all on one level. The “cottage” part offers kitchen with combined dining/living area, bath, bedroom, and a screened porch, in about 700 square feet. The attached suite will be a 1-room bedroom and bath unit of about 400-450 square feet, with exterior sliding-door entry and a small porch, located on the other side of the kitchen/living areas. The door connecting the two sides can be used or not as the residents decide. This structure can function either as two separate units or as a 2-bedroom house, either for friends living together or a individual or couple living with a teenager or elderly parent (see Living Options). Some of these structures may be duplexed.

 

 3 Bedroom Family House

This structure is a 3 bedroom house designed for more economy, especially for a family with several young children and/or elderly parent. Using the same kitchen/living/ dining/porch core as the Flex Houses, the bedroom half will offer three bedrooms and 1 1/2 shared baths.
