Homes For Less: Emily Carr’s homeless housing project
This project was realized by Emily Carr's students in 2008. What makes this project different is that the designers really see their small houses as a viable, affordable, project for the city of Vancouver to take on. The houses, each 64 square feet, would be situated in groups of 10-12 around a shared kitchen and toilet facilities. The city of Vancouver was approached about adopting this project, which costs approximately $1500 (Canadian) per tiny house. An entire installment of this micro-community "could be made for about what the government is paying to renovate a single suite in one of their Single Resident Occupancy (SRO) hotels scattered around the city."
