RE: Starter Home - LA County Arts Council Competition Finalist
The goal of the competition was to identify typologies that can be replicated throughout Los Angeles’ new ADU (accessory dwelling units) policies. Named a finalist, “the starter home,” combined sustainable features of everyday living with the affordability of prefabricated homes for newly rehabilitated homeless people.
The home operates from a central spine where all utilities are connected and dispersed throughout the structure. Occupants have easy and safe access to the home’s necessities.
