domestiCITY is structured as a two-phase design competition that will explore best practices and innovative strategies for the planning, design, construction, and operation of a ordable and sustainable developments in increasingly urbanized areas.
The design competition aims specially to redevelop Santa Fe Villas, a 4-acre 147-unit transitional housing development along a low-density commercial corridor in south Atlanta, improving access to a ordable housing through strategic densication, social revitalization, and mixed-use new construction. The physical redevelopment of the Santa Fe Villas, combined with new-construction on an adjacent 3-acre abandoned motel site, will ultimately serve as a built prototype for a ordable housing solutions along under-developed commercial corridors in Atlanta and in other rapidly-growing population centers throughout North America.
The competition seeks innovative proposals on how to balance the financial and spatial challenges of development in heavily populated areas with the social and economic needs of existing and future communities. Project teams are asked to submit a proposed site plan and an associated building parti along with ideas for economic feasibility, architectural innovation, architectural programming, and project replicability. Contestants should consider how their proposals empower and respond to the needs of the communities served, and how their design solutions allow longevity in the maintenance of new and existing facilities.
