PORE HOUSE

 Pore House was our entry into the Cradle To Cradle (C2C) low-cost, sustainable housing competition held in 2004. For the project, we developed a modular, porous skin that varies along a series of gradients to accommodate the changing natural light requirements of the program. Each “pore,” or modular panel in the skin houses a light opening, an air vent, pv cells, and a furrow system for directing water to a recycling cistern.

Draft House was developed as an entry in the HOME House Project Competition. The challenge was to provide new designs for single family housing for low-and moderate income families using Habitat for Humanity’s basic three-and-four bedroom house as a point of departure. Our proposal suggests an adjusted definition of “site”, which accounts for more than the house’s 60’ x 150’ plot of land. Physical (biological), social, and financial forces all participate in shaping the house.

FEEDBACK HOUSE

 This prototype affordable house located in Houston's Fifth Ward District was commissioned by Houston's Fifth Ward Community Redevelopment Corporation and Rice University. The FWCRC is a non-profit agency that builds single family houses through the Voucher Program, a federal housing initiative in which the disbursement of down payment "vouchers" is used to assist low income families in the purchase of houses.
