American Housing Projects

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of American Housing. We aim to include projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed US residential buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across the United States of america. The focus is on contemporary American residential buildings but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.

We have 2 pages of American Residential Architecture selections with links to many individual project pages.

MIR housing
The New Orleans shotgun typology is the resultant of lot constraints, environmental conditions and efficient planning. Our approach to the project was to identify these main characteristics and re-present them in a more contemporary vision. As the design focuses on “safe” materials and low utility consumption, the roof becomes the main architectural expression that subtly gestures at the form of the pitched roofs common to the area of the lower 9th Ward. While reinforcing a familiar experience of place, the roof integrates entry, circulation and gathering spaces into degrees of out-sidedness that are typical of New Orleans typologies and their emphasis on the “porch”.

ten museum park Condo
Ten Museum Park is an exploration of the hedonistic possibilities of architecture in a futuristic tropical playground of urban sophistication. This project represents the rare opportunity when imagination and reality fuse to create new luxuries and experiences beyond fantasy. A crisp, well proportioned exoskeleton engages a pure crystalline volume soaring 50 stories above the bay—a dynamic beacon for the majestic cruise ships as they return from their voyages around the globe. Framing fragments of water, city and sky, every personal and communal space within the complex was designed to serve as a backdrop for life in its most beautiful form.
