A new Buffalo double

ARC605 | Spring 2018

More than one third of the housing structures in Buffalo are Buffalo double, which are two floor/two flat houses. From the outside, these houses look like single family homes and it is not really possible to make any distinction between the 2 apartments. The objective of this project was to propose a new Buffalo double typology that would allow for more personalization and allow both residential units to have their own expression, while remaining an affordable option for families with low incomes.
