Randy Brown Architects was challenged to create a new type of suburban housing development that responds to both the demands of single-family homebuyers and addresses the problematic nature of sprawling cookie cutter housing developments. 12 homes have been designed that offer an affordable modern eco-friendly environment.

    I’m sure this is a nice house to live in.
    But this house doesn’t question the demands of single-family homebuyers that make suburban sprawl so problematic.
    I see just another suburban house, not very compact, with a garage for three cars and no neighbours in sight.
    What exactly makes this house so ‘eco-friendly’ ?
