Studio.625 was hired to design this rural co-housing community for people who seek a modest home in a development founded on the
principle of Voluntary Simplicity. Although the design will not be built, it would have featured twelve modest 1,300 square
feet 3-bedroom homes, employed sustainable design practices & materials, and approached Zero Net Energy status (the
buildings were designed to have put as much power into the local electrical grid as taken out in any given year). In addition to
the homes, each resident would have shared ownership and use of a Community House, barn, and communal vegetable gardens
on the 110-acre rural site.
