Abstract

Low Income Housing. Government Aided Housing. These two phrases bring to mind images of dimly lit, poorly designed, cramped spaces. But they don't have to be. Technology and design have come a long way since the initial templates for this sort of housing were put into place. Safety, comfort, functionality, cost - these privileges don't need to be given up or weighed against each other to decide what's most important. This project outlines the potential for a LEED Neighborhood, low-income housing community right here in Logan, Utah. The design of this community produces a safe environment for kids and families. Each home is designed to utilize every bit of space effectively while still keeping square footage (and in turn, costs) low without the feeling of "living in a shoebox." With this project, the government is investing in not only people's lives, but their mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing, while addressing environmental, social, and economic issues.
