DESIGN

The AspireHouse is a contemporary expansion of the historic “Shotgun House,” a traditional vernacular home design with a linear alignment of the front and rear doors and no interior hallways. Dramatically angled, clerestory windows above the front and rear doors provide views of the changing sky and let light enter at all times of the day. The home is separated into clear “private” and “public” zones, with sleeping areas on one side of the residence, and the living areas and kitchen along the opposite side.

The design also recalls the tradition of the American porch by providing generous covered spaces at the front and rear doors. Activating the outdoor areas around the building fosters a sense of community and encourages residents to expand their experience at home. Two of the prototype homes (of four completed) are adjacent to each other; in this case the designs are mirrored so that the public zones of porch, kitchen and living areas create a dialog between the two structures. The setback around the houses is planned to accommodate a community garden that could serve the residents in both houses and encourage healthy lifestyle choices.
