cookie cutter homes of the future

Abstract:With continued growth in population the demand for increased housing remains causing the need for traditional single family homes to be built. However, with sudden increase in developed areas predominantly relying on single family residential type developments, commonly known as “cookie cutter” type developments, the concern for more self-sustained design will continue to escalate. This project provides an option for a self-sustained design of a single family home that includes a fully integrated aquaponics system. This type of development will present a new way of living for families who are interested in providing a healthier lifestyle for themselves and a greener future for their children. Using current tract homes as a design base to be utilized with aquaponics systems will create sustainable ways to address the need for a more self-sufficient design. The use of existing tract housing development will be altered to show how aquaponics can be integrated with current tract housing designs to improve standard trends. This project will aim to create a new method of approach towards including self-sustenance in the continued growing demand of cookie cutter home designs in isolated and/or over populated locations such as Hawai’i.
