Spring-Summer 2022: 746 Jett Street Residences
This project emerged from a year-long set of courses, directed by Julie Ju-Youn Kim. Students employed design research methods including site analysis, schematic design, and performance simulation to empower a current resident with a new affordable home aimed at redefining resiliency and economic sustainability.
Impact: Turning theory into practice, this project brings the students’ work into a real-world application. A team of recent graduates, supported by practitioners offering technical expertise, are currently developing a set of documents for permit and construction. This proposal establishes a replicable model for future development and construction of affordable housing, designed to meet building performance criteria, thereby lessening energy burdens on thousands of future homeowners.
