2020 Virtual Housing Studio

ADU Over One Car Garage

Project Information

ADU Type:        Dwelling Over One Car Garage

ADU Site:        Urban Lot w/o Alley, Durham, NC

Designer:         Fate Malek, NC State 2020 Summer Housing Studio

This is a one bedroom Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) over a one-car garage design on an urban lot without an alley. It has 580 square feet of conditioned space. It is designed to be appropriately scaled and comfortable in the context of the site. While the program assigned requires a one-car garage, this urban site appears inappropriate for a full driveway to the garage. However, this program may be very appropriate as a workshop, garden shed, or other utility space without need for a driveway.

Relative Cost Evaluation: $$$
