Tiny Solutions: Big Impactpresented by Shears Adkins Rockmore Architects
With over 5,800 people experiencing homelessness in the Denver Metro region, and 940+ of that population unsheltered, living on the streets, under bridges, abandoned buildings or open areas, it’s no secret that this is a serious challenge for the City of Denver. A team of designers from SA+R partnered with The Colorado Village Collaborative and through a lot of research, community sessions, and meetings, the team came up with a new solution for homelessness in Colorado – The Tiny Home Initiative. The primary goal was to create temporary tiny home shelters to give people experiencing homelessness a place to call their own and the stability to get back on their feet. Hear about the design process from concept to construction and learn how they stretched a mere $15,000 budget per tiny home to provide all the basic sheltering needs while delivering an attractive design and tiny house community.
