U of U students design efficient, affordable housing

SALT LAKE CITY (News4Utah) – University of Utah students have designed energy-efficient, affordable housing units; all they need is the permission to build.

Design+Build Salt Lake is a newly formed partnership between the Uof U’s Architecture students, Habitat for Humanity, and Salt Lake City’s Housing and Neighborhood Development department.

Their first project subdivided a half-acre lot into three single family homes attached to a community garden and play ground, called the Montgomery Triplets. The lot is in the Poplar Grove neighborhood of Salt Lake City. The team expects to begin construction next summer.

Watch the full report above to see the plans for the hyper-efficient and affordable homes.
