Habitat Trails . . . A Manual For Affordable Green Neighborhood Development, Community Design Center Jan 2005

Habitat Trails . . . A Manual For Affordable Green Neighborhood Development, Community Design Center

Project Reports

Habitat Trails is a green affordable neighborhood development consisting of 17 Habitat for Humanity homes. The site is designed as a sponge to work in accord with existing hydrological drainage, catchment, and recharge patterns. Stormwater runoff is retained and treated through a contiguous network of bioswales, infiltration trenches, stormwater gardens, sediment filter strips, and a constructed wet meadow. The integration of a treatment landscape with open space substitutes an ecologically-based stormwater management system for the expensive curb-gutter-pipe solution in civil infrastructure.

Building Case Studies

High level of porosity in the central portion of the wall. Effective horizontal bonding and load distribution between the bricks. No visible intrusion of any material other than brick masonry onto the façade. The repeating pattern modules must be complete end to end over the entire width and height of the wall i.e. there should be no deviation in the pattern. Through computer modeling, the architects realized that a simple rotating module of bricks would create the kind of visual and textural complexity need to achieve the design objective of engaging the street corner
