This project is the result of a unique partnering between Amherst College and Pioneer Valley Habitat for Humanity. Amherst College donated the land to build four houses over the course of 4 years. Kuhn Riddle provided the design of the prototype houses. Super-insulated envelopes and point-source heating provide an economical alternative for affordable housing.
