“From a small seed a mighty trunk may grow”
Little Pink House is a platform for Generation Z to live their version of the American Dream.
Set in New Orleans amidst the slow rebirth of the Ninth Ward, this micro-house has characteristics typically found in NOLA housing, like a stoop, colorful wood siding and a front porch. A custom-designed wood façade and soffit is composed of locally reclaimed wood spliced together to create larger beam-like elements. The soffit uses modern weather membranes and is supported by a low-profile steel structure.
The bells and whistles of today’s modern homes come at a price—a sizable mortgage. But Little Pink House is the equivalent of low-cost airfare, with a low starting price and a la carte improvements.
Because our customer wants a sustainable mortgage (or none at all), Little Pink House offers immediate accessibility followed by incremental, affordable expansion. Basic architectural plans for additional bedrooms and living spaces are provided, but they are merely examples of what’s possible.
LPH is about simplicity, community and personalization. Over time, owners can create the space they want in a pay-as-you-go, community-driven model.
It’s a new approach to social housing, which is typically impersonal and impossible to modify. It also gives affordable housing residents the middle-class experience of crafting a dream home over time.
