This plan was designed to address the relationship between the spatial needs of an expanding family and budget constraints. The general idea is that as your family and budget grows over time, so does your need for more space and also your ability to afford that extra space. We start with a core living unit that will comfortably accommodate two adults. Just as your family may grow, so may your home by adding on additional sleeping units. We chose to represent each of the modular additions to the Patchwork House uniquely to express the diversity within each individual member of a large family. This design concept is ideal for a vacation home or for a growing family. The core unit is the common gathering space within the home. It provides a large kitchen, dining and living area. All the standard living needs of the core unit are provided such that it could serve as a standalone home for up to two adults. The extra pods include a large guest sleeping unit and a large roof deck for outdoor entertainment and or a secluded escape. The advantages provided by this modularity include its ability to fit onto almost any site and its ability to blend private and public spaces. Each unit is separated from the next by connector passage ways. This isolates the units from one another in turn providing extra privacy. This can be a desirable feature if several adult couples are living in, or vacationing at, the home together. Although each unit is private they all open out to a communal deck. The orientation of the individual units of the Patchwork House creates a courtyard effect.
