Students from the spring 2014 Architecture Studio worked on alternative proposals for affordable housing for the town of Westport, Massachusetts, investigating single and multiple units while reactivating dormant infill properties owned by the town. The studio focused on developing landscape and water infrastructure alongside a housing design that responded to the demands of low and moderate income residences.


Currently, there are not any fire stations within an appropriate range for development on the Drift Road site. This will make it essential for a proposed development to contain a pond and pump onsite for immediate fire control until further assistance arrives. Should municipal water not be available for residents on this site, private well systems will need to be built on each property, a minimum of 100 feet away from any septic system.
