Sag Harbor Cottages
Sag Harbor Community Housing Trust commissioned this project to address the area's urgent need for workforce housing. The cottages are a replicable model for affordable housing that is sensitive to the small-scale residential typology and unique ecology of the twin forks of Long Island. The one-, two-, and three –bedroom houses are all assembled from combinations of two basic prefabricated modules. The site arrangement includes individual front yards and rear decks, connecting side porches and a shared garden path. In this way, the design encourages community interaction and recreation, while also creating private outdoor spaces that extend the house into the landscape.
Our team of collaborators brought their special experience in energy performance (Garrison Architecture), affordable housing (Jonathan Kirschenfeld Architects) and sustainable landscape (Gans &Company) to the shared design vision of this project.
