description  
Climate conditions culture itself and is a fundamental and unchanging force which contributes to generate a regional architecture in compliance with its environment. Beyond the use of recyclable materials the Bio Climatic Design (high ceilings (10 feet) and naturally induced cooling cross ventilation in every room) addresses priorities existing in vernacular architecture giving to the town house a character of nobility and environmental assimilation. Each apartment has cross ventilation throughout and within each room.
The architectural parti addresses compatibility, integration, identity and unity in an urban setting which expands on New Orleans' uniqueness. The urban scale with safe pedestrian accessibility shapes a sense of community organized around green spaces attempting to engage a positive interactive attraction within existing neighborhoods to stimulate economic stability and create social and community support advancing ecological and environmental responsibility by recycling materials and bioclimatic technologies.
The prototype of the townhouse has been developed with a social service supervisory, a design/build construction company owner, an architectural metal manufacturing/specialty design company owner and a collaborative architecture firm. The town house model represents the ultimate development of Modular Transitional Growth expandable housing which allows compact unit to expend into town house without relocation. The Modular Transitional Growth housing unit intends to offer multiple expansion steps according to an individual's needs and means; and, strengthens the permanency of community life as it expands through life cycle of housing needs. MTG construction system offers sustainability within its own growth by recycling its modular system, and utilizing bioclimatic technologies. The unique self-recycling feature entails re-using existing parts-a process of organic shading-as MTG evolves toward a more mature expression and a more complete appropriation and identification of housing which is tailored to the individual's life need and span, in tandem with their socio-economic resources
