Low Income Housing


Housing Authority of Savannah 

Savannah, Georgia


On a 12-acre site containing existing roads, 60 units of single family detached houses are designed with three goals in mind. The first is to make use of the site to establish a sense of neighborhood. The second is to create a streetscape with variety that also reflects traditional elements found in Savannah housing of comparable scale. The third is to plan units which maintain a sense of identity, territory and security. The stand-alone dwellings represent a departure in Savannah’s public housing from multi-unit block buildings and duplexes to the image of a resident-owned community.
