20Kv09 Mac's Home

Faunsdale AL / 2010 / Outreach Project

MacArthur’s Home follows the precedent set by 20Kv08 Dave’s Home in terms of straightforward construction and a refined material palette. Instead of using the white corrugated metal used at Dave’s Home, the team used fiber cement board, painted white. In response to the open floor plan of Dave’s Home, MacArthur’s Home separates each space into a more distinct room. The house shape recalled a modified version of a “dogtrot” typology. Though the middle of the house is not a fully-opened porch, the front porch tucks in under the roof between the two side volumes, and the front and back door line up to offer opportunities for cross-ventilation. A larger back porch is sized such that it could be enclosed and used for a second bedroom. The team proposed several strategies for expansion of the house, so the house could grow with the family that occupies it.
