Click on the individual designs to see the concepts for community focused designs:

Cottage Cluster

“Mcallister Village” – The Mcallister Village concept is to create a neighborhood of small, universal designed starter homes a short walk from coffee shops, restaurants and the future downtown Crozet.

“Ridge Coliving” – Appearing to be three single family houses in downtown Charlottesville is actually the rediscovery of a housing concept that has been around forever and has just started to regain popularity. In each of the “coliving” houses four unrelated single people or couples each rent their own fully furnished bedroom and bathroom suite, then share the well appointed kitchen, comfortable living room, and quality outdoor space with the other three. The great rental experience coupled with a built-in social circle simply isn’t available when renting a house or an apartment by yourself.

“999 Rio” – This interesting little mixed use project is located on a busy arterial road on one edge and a much quieter neighborhood street on another. The plan is to build a small office building along the arterial road with a residential pocket neighborhood along the neighborhood street.

“Bamboo Grove Pocket Neighborhood” – A miniature neighborhood with six compact, affordable and energy efficient houses is designed for an acre of land a few blocks from downtown Crozet. Shared green space between the houses anchors the neighboorhood together while walking trails and sidewalks connect it to nature and the surrounding community.

“Ecovillage Charlottesville” – After many years of planning and dreaming, Ecovillage Charlottesville is getting close to the final approvals needed to start construction, see the latest designs, renderings, floor plans and video walkthroughs here:

The Orchard Houses – Two compact and beautiful houses are designed for an acre of land a few blocks from downtown Crozet. They have been designed with care for affordability, efficiency, on site food production, comfort and great outdoor spaces. Live in a walkable community and grow your own food!
