Inscape Studio is developing the schematic design drawings created by Inscape Publico for the eCasa Housing Development. The design was the winning proposal submitted through our nonprofit partner Mi Casa in response to a RFP from the DC Department of Housing and Community Development to develop a parcel of land on the 1600 block of Kramer Street, NE. Mi Casa is a nonprofit provider of affordable housing, sustaining diverse and healthy communities in the DC and Baltimore metropolitan areas. 12 townhomes will be built and they will provide affordable high-performance housing to low-income families in Washington, DC. The three bedroom, one and a half bath eCasa houses are designed for a narrow building footprint, with an efficient open first floor plan for living, dining, work/study, and preparing meals. Front porches and stoops connect the houses to the street and each unit has a private rear yard for entertainment and a garden. The house is Net Zero Energy, producing, through photovoltaics, as much energy as it uses over the course of a year.
