50 Houses. Stories of Scarborough
The single-family home is no longer exclusively a place for the nuclear family. Today, these structures are used for a wide variety of domestic arrangements. The project begins with a survey of the inhabitants of 50 homes in Scarborough. It creates a subjective atlas of residents’ needs, habits, and scenarios of habitation. A narrative of new domesticities emerges, which structures a new architectural organization. I propose addressing changing domestic needs by adding density, creating new public space, and bringing new connectivity to an area of low-rise, singlefamily, detached houses.
