COURTYARD HOUSING COMPETITION

LOCATION: PORTLAND, OR

SIZE: 10,000 sq' lot

STATUS: COMPETITION - COMMENDATION

In 2007 Portland, Oregon held a competition to look at the problem of medium density housing in the city through the creating of Courtyard Housing. It followed up the city's successful Skinny House competition. The project strives to create a northwest modern inter-generational living solution while concentrating on buildability and livability. Six multi bedroom units look onto a central court while using basic shed forms and veradahs to create privacy and solar shading. 

This project was created by Schuyler Smith in collaboration with Armin Quillici.
