This was a housing competition put on by the Housing Agency of Jamaica (HAJ) in North Coast Georgian Heritage town of Falmouth, Trelawny, Jamaica. The site is 500 acres and situated 2 miles out of the town of Falmouth and is meant to be a housing development for the workers and staff of the new cruise ship destinations developments being carried on by the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line. This design proposal comprised of over 1000 houses with supporting commercial and heritage tourism attractions for the creating of revenue and exchanges of goods and services.
The development had two housing units that not only implemented energy saving devices but were also expandable by 100% of its original sizes with 20% of the cost of the initial value of the unit without any demolition. Each unit was designed to be a “housing starter” which would be smaller in size as to allow the cost of each unit to be reduced therefore enabling an increase in the amount of persons that would be able to afford them while giving them the potential to increase the size of the units as their families and resources would grow in the future.
