NextGen Homes was a design competition hosted by the Green Spaces of Chattanooga. The entrants were to design four single family detached houses designed for extremely steep sites near an art district. Teaming with Chattanooga firm, MAR-7 Architecture, our submission featured houses, each with two level, which differed only slightly.
The uphill units were designed to be entered on the upper floor, which contained the public ares, with the bedrooms and private areas on the lower floor. That scheme is then reversed on the downhill units.
That scheme is then reversed on the downhill units. Sustainability was a major design component and passive and active solar elements were incorporated, as well as intelligent uses of materials and systems. The project received an honorable mention.
