합리적인 소비, 합리적인 거주를 위한 건축은 소유; 부동산에서 소비로 변화하는 주거가치에 대한 시장흐름을 이야기 합니다. 뉴올리언스 지역건축스튜디오, OJT가 제안하는 스타터 홈은 비교적 저렴한 가격에 현대적인 거주환경을 제공, 처음 집을 구매하는 이들의 합리적인 거주를 목적으로 합니다. 경량구조로 이루어진 단순함 속에 기능공간은 975스퀘어피트(약90.58m2) 면적 내에 침실과 사무실 그리고 화장실을 포함합니다.
developed as an opportunistic and affordable urban housing program by new orleans-based studio OJT (office of jonathan tate). ‘starter home*’ explores the relevant and increasing problem of entry-level homes, while pairing contemporary design and addressing environmental concerns.
the project, led by architect jonathan tate has been designed to cater to a range of buyers; from people buying for the first time; downsizing; densification through infill of overlooked odd or irregular vacant land. the first starter home* has been launched in new orleans, located in the irish channel neighborhood of the american city.

the designers sought out an approach that uses creative land strategies, with design to develop homeownership opportunities in dense neighborhoods. ‘the starter home moniker is important in that it clearly associates the program with a quintessential, albeit fading, component of the american housing market.’ comments jonathan tate, OJT‘conventionally understood as monotonous, mass produced, greenfield development, this program takes a decidedly opposite approach of architectural particularity and urban integration to achieve similar aims. and, unlike its namesake, it relies wholly on design to set the development agenda,create access to land and generate the product. without architecture, in this context, there would be no development.’
working closely with the developer and builder, the new orlean’s starter house is sited between industrial warehouses and historic buildings. the constricting footprint, coupled with area ground rules resulted in a staggered form.
measuring at 975 square feet, the home contains one bedroom, one and a half baths with an office space, and tailored towards individuals or couples. the narrow and tall structure has maximized space by using an elevated deck which wraps around the home. through exploring land-use, programmatic and spatial variations, the starter home* project opens up opportunities, while providing alternative options in the competitive housing market.
