Small Spaces contest by UO


Attention Arc_ID students! This “small spaces” contest by Urban Outfitters allows you to show the innovation and design you’ve put into a small living space. It won’t necessarily get you national recognition, but it WILL get you $1000 in free clothes or furnishings from their store. Click here to find out more info!

From the Duvivier Architects website:
“This house is certified LEED Platinum, the highest environmental rating in the US, the ultimate in green architecture. The house is oriented to the south, has a three story cooling tower, and a living green wall. It has efficient windows, water heater and appliances. It features a storm water percolation pit and has a greywater system awaiting final City approval.”

A piece on the home was also published in the Eco-Home Journal and you can read the text here
