This project is a low-cost sustainable solution that takes advantage of new technological advances to create an adaptable building system that celebrates residents’ diversity while providing a dignified solution to their needs. The building consists of identical prefabricated cross laminated timber (CLT) modules which are easy to fabricate, transport and assemble on site. Using CLT originating from sustainably managed forests can result in anegative carbon footprint, and provide excellent life-cycle performance. Each module has customizable facade metal panels which relate to the neighborhood by varying in size, shape and color, according to residents’ needs and preferences.
