Location: Fullerton, CA
Builder: Habitat for Humanity Orange County
A nod to mid-century modern vernacular paired with new building technology, the home has a small footprint yet it still achieves California style outdoor living with the deck off the upstairs family room designed as a roof garden. The multi-generational component acknowledges the challenges of housing for an increasing number of families. The accessible adaptable unit allows for separation and privacy.
The corner site sits on the edge of a residential zone bounded by commercial buildings on a busy arterial street. The house is also built on an R-2 zoned parcel that will include two future smaller homes also to be built by the Builder, which presented an opportunity for an “eyes on the street” environment in contrast to the busy context of the location. Achieved by locating a secondary entrance to the home to connect the other two entrances accessed from a shared driveway on the residential street.
