216 Alabama represented Studio 804’s first house for Tenants to Homeowners, an organization devoted to providing affordable housing to qualified buyers. Accessibility and use of innovative materials continued to define the design process. Elevating the house above the falling grade allowed for full accessibility to the occupants. The large open plan of the 1300 square foot interior has a finished floor of bamboo, with recycled tires used on the bathroom floor. Okume, a material normally used in boat building, is instead applied as siding. In addition, recycled aluminum sheets are utilized as interior finishes in the bathrooms as well as the garage roof.
