Howard County Housing Commission
The Cottages at Greenwood is a precedent-setting project, consisting of 10 single-family houses designed to be affordable, sustainable, and universally accessible. The Howard County Housing Commission was the sponsor for this innovative housing concept project. The 1,300-square-foot, three-bedroom houses were designed to be affordable to purchase and economical to operate, feature a wide variety of green features and create an environment that is inviting and functional for all residents and guests. The Cottages at Greenwood earned LEED Platinum certification and is net-zero ready. The site design succeeded in creating an urban, community-based design while complying with standard suburban subdivision regulations.
