Core House


Core House is a prototype designed in partnership with Habitat for Humanity-Lincoln, a chapter of the international organization that serves the Lincoln community by providing simple, decent, and affordable housing. Habitat works with community members seeking affordable housing by providing them with 0% interest home mortgages. Habitat for Humanity relies on volunteers and several vendor partnerships that donate their time and materials to help reduce building costs.

Core House was designed to adapt to families, and single individuals seeking a modern, affordable home. The social spaces in this house are designed to be open and airy, with ten foot ceilings. The side patio creates an expansion of space, becoming another room in the house to enjoy. The efficient plan focuses on the core, which includes the kitchen, bathroom, vertical circulation, and the utilities. The plumbing for the core is consolidated into one wall, which significantly reduces the cost of the home.
