Our firm loves entering competitions! This is the first of 3 completed in a 12-month period in 2017/2018. Competitions challenge us in ways that are quite different than our typical projects. In this submission, we collaborated with Wright Builders, Powerhouse Energy, and Karelt de la Cruz to design 3 clustered units of affordable, Zero Net Energy homes. I would be happy to move into any of these units as they are spacious, sunny, and sure to be free of any future utility costs!
The competition was sponsored by the City of Northampton, AIA Western Mass, the Boston Society of Architects and PV Habitat for Humanity.
