The JPC ecoMOD design team consisted of three undergraduate architects and a faculty advisor. Our goal was to design a new home for Building a Bridge, a nonprofit organization based in Charlottesville, Virginia. The organization provides housing for adults with permanent brain injuries. The design process proved to be challenging due to the special requirements of the disabled occupants. The team took great care in creating a design that maximized accessibility, and minimized construction costs and environmental impact. The final two-story home consisted of six prefabricated modules that included all of the specialized elements required in a care facility.
