Cluster Housing

The concept of this project was to take the traditional Chicago row house and the block it sits on and transform it into a housing cluster that has double the occupancy. The row houses are transformed to identify with more current needs of people living in cities. The homes also come in different sizes and can be arranged in numerous ways. This combination of options give each block a unique look while truly identifying with the current and future needs of its people. Each block holds a sunken parking garage in the center with a large park on top. This creates a place for people to interact and reduces the need for harsh alleyways. Each unit also has their own personal green space and the combinations stand no more than two levels above ground.
