With Maison Reciprocity, Team Réciprocité strives to reinvent modern living in row house neighborhoods. As a low-rise multi-family housing structure with low environmental impact, Maison Reciprocity is constructed of entirely green and sustainable building materials and products.
With Maison Reciprocity, Team Réciprocité strives to reinvent modern living in row house neighborhoods by seeking to offer society an answer to the lack of affordable, healthy, high-quality, durable, sustainable, and adaptable housing.
The home features loft-like living in prefabricated modules that allow the home to be separated into three main components, inspired by the balanced, natural ecosystem of Aspen tree colonies:
CHORD – Container for High-performance Operation, Recirculation, and Distribution – is a central component that contains all mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, as well as a staircase, galley kitchen, laundry, two bathrooms, and two mechanical spaces.
Urban Shell – Creates the structural and insulating enclosure for the home, as well as the livable spaces.
“Living” Brise-Soleil – Harnesses solar energy to power the home, shades the home to prevent overheating, and manages rainwater.
