Artisans Group Designs Habitat Homes

The South Puget Sound Habitat for Humanity approached Artisan Group with a wonderful opportunity to work together on the development of a 3-acre parcel for affordable homes.

Working closely with the South Puget Sound Habitat for Humanity, Artisan Group developed a staggered duplex townhouse design that will provide affordable and high performance homes for local families. The pragmatic and modern design of these duplex townhouses helps the contractor stretch every dollar in the interest of maximizing performance and efficiency while the staggered entrances and variation in roof lines provide visual interest and a unique neighborhood experience.

With a floor plan that accommodates 3 bedrooms (or a fourth accessible bedroom on the ground floor), 2 bathrooms, a roomy kitchen and an island that serves a large great room, this townhouse is ready to add usability, performance and aesthetic interest to lots, subdivisions and eco-villages.

 An advocate for local resilience, the Sound Puget Sound affiliate of Habitat for Humanity serves Thurston County and is “governed locally, raises funds locally and builds locally.”  Their mission driven approach provides affordable, healthy and sustainable housing and creates a unique opportunity for people to become homeowners of healthy and sustainable new homes. Serving those that  traditional options often leaving them on the outside looking in.  

“In 2005 I had the opportunity through a college internship to build a home with South Puget Sound Habitat for Humanity and I’ve been impressed ever since by how forward-thinking the organization truly is in bringing affordable housing to the community.” As a firm known for our early adoption of sustainable and energy-efficient Passive House architecture, everyone at Artisans Group has been thrilled to partner with Habitat.” says  COO Artisans Group, Roussa Cassel
