Resilient Coastal Housing

FutureVisionSeaBright2 ARCH 464/507 SUMMER 2013 – Professor Keith Krumwiede Currently, municipalities do not posses a comprehensive planning strategy to mitigate a homeowner’s decision of whether or not to elevate the home or rebuild as before. The consequence is a varied streetscape comprised of divergent building typologies that lack any cohesion. The resulting transformation of neighborhoods is not only disrupting the architectural fabric and character of entire neighborhoods, but lessening the quality of life of residents as well. The “porch culture” intrinsic to the way of life of these former summer cottages and fishing villages of coastal communities, is forever altered.
