contributed by cookplusfox

Completed in late 2010, the Live Work Home considers the longevity and livelihood of the Near West Side of Syracuse, NY, a shrinking city affected by the migration of significant industry throughout the 20th century. Today, the neighbourhood faces high unemployment rates and lacks space for creative industry. Affordable housing alone does not respond to the needs of the neighbourhood; its vitality as a community is a question of sustaining livelihoods and the social diversity. Essentially a small modern loft, the simple and flexible construction of Live Work Home - a column-free structure with sliding doors and mobile partitions - was designed to address a range of uses over time and allows for a lifetime of waste-free remodelling. This 1,400 square foot project reconsiders the understood definition of 'home' for a new, urban context- and demonstrates how small-scale sustainable architecture can be delivered at the highest level.
