As a community of mostly single-family homes, Paradise lacked diverse housing opportunities. The goal of rethinking housing was a proposal for an assortment of higher-density housing and mixed-uses, strategically located, to accommodate a wider range of residents in terms of age, marital status, family situation, and economic position. Such diversity could provide a more stable future for Paradise, allowing younger workers and lower-income families the ability to both live and work there, while still keeping the town’s overall low-density character.
The projects on this poster show a range of housing types and target populations: workforce, co-housing, and senior housing. In all, the students proposed some 400 units of new multi-family housing.
