[adapt] broadmoor

For three weeks in the summer of 2010, 7 third-year architecture students at Kansas State University undertook the USGBC Natural Talent Design Competition. We were tasked with designing an 800 square foot house for elderly residents in the Broadmoor neighborhood of New Orleans, Louisiana. In addition, the house needed to meet the requirements for LEED for Homes Platinum certification, stay within a $100,000 construction budget, and use universal design principles throughout.
