Both 515 and 519 Pierce Avenue in Whitehall are the second and third installment of local affordable housing solutions, in partnership with COCIC. Stemming from the City of Columbus, COCIC, and Neighborhood Design Center’s NextHome Competition in 2021, these houses were designed to be efficient—from the site planning and layout and footprint of a single-family home to the means and duration of construction and ultimately the life-cycle operations and costs for the end-user. Utilizing structural insulated panel construction, this system reduces the length of construction for a single-family home while increasing the energy efficiency of the home, thus reducing the costs to the end-user, ultimately leading to a more affordable product.
Launched by the Neighborhood Design Center in 2021, NextHome, a housing design competition, sought forward-thinking strategies and high-quality housing solutions that provide greater access to housing for everyone. Archall was the second-place winner and is the architect for these projects.
