Design a Tiny Home for "Community First! Village"

We’d like to invite the community to participate in ‘making space’ and designing a conceptual tiny home for Community First! Village, which provides permanent housing and a supportive community for people coming out of chronic homelessness. STG Design has designed three built homes and is in the process of designing several more for the ground-breaking Mobile Loaves and Fishes’ 50-acre project in East Austin.

In our hands-on workshop, we will host a ‘visioning and imaging’ session to gather everyone’s ideas on what makes a home and how we can create a space where formerly homeless people can thrive. Using VR technology, we will translate the ideas from the session in an immersive way to show how users would experience the space in a real-life perspective and accurate scale.
