This two-unit dwelling for formerly houseless individuals was designed for Columbus House—a New Haven, CT, nonprofit—as a competition entry for the 2020 Jim Vlock Building Project. The transition from a temporary homelessness to a rich and long-term domesticity is at the heart of this project. This dwelling also develops the concept of a transition to accommodate the changes in the occupant’s life over time. As the years pass and the residents age, both units are designed to accommodate their aging in place.
