Entry Description

Printed in 24 hours, these community-driven designs adapt to the unique culture, climate and needs of the people living there. Our approach addressed the important questions related to climate, family structure and the role that the homes can play in creating a larger community. Features that improve ventilation and offer outdoor spaces for cooking, dining and family gathering, are all part of the multiple design programs we created for the community. The roof overhang over the front and back patios provide added shade from the sun, protection from rainfall and a space for socializing.
