A3 Architects was honored to be awarded first place in both the 1 bedroom and 3 bedroom categories of the Cape Cod Young Professionals design competition for affordable housing on Cape Cod. We look forward to working with the CCYP to further develop these schemes into permit sets and have them constructed in the future.
The designs are all quite traditional and compact, again to address affordability. We are committed to low energy use homes, so all three were designed to be net-zero possible with the addition of photovoltaic panels. While affordable housing is an issue on the Cape so are energy prices. Fixing energy costs goes a long way towards addressing affordability.
