Wiencek + Associates Architects + Planners ─ Gaithersburg, MD

For the recent DC Affordable Living Design Competition, the Wiencek + Associates team based their concept around an existing Cottonwood tree on the site.  Just as the tree collects, stores, and transforms resources while supplying food and shelter, the twelve homes on the site address the 7 petals of the Living Building Challenge – Place, Water, Energy, Health & Happiness, Materials, Equity, and Beauty. The urban infill project is completely independent of all infrastructure systems, functioning as a complete ecosystem.
