Habitat for Humanity
Social Housing in Catano, P.R.
Catano, P.R. / Professor A. Sanchez / Spring 2006
The social housing complex design for Habitat for Humanity is located in the downtown area of Cataño, Puerto Rico. The site is located in a residential street between existing detached single family houses. The concept of the project is born out of a word puzzle from which two forms are born the bar shape and the L shape. These two forms are developed into the living modules. The connection between the two modules creates the residential complex. There are two types of connections, produced by the overlapping and contact of the pieces.
