Text description provided by the architects. Public Architecture’s 1% for Habitat Initiative matched el dorado inc with Heartland Habitat for Humanity to design and build a home that surpasses the organization’s already strict design and sustainability standards. This prototype features three bedrooms and two baths in a flexible layout that can be modified to accommodate both front-loaded and rear-loaded sites. A slab-on-grade foundation allows for full ADA accessibility.
