MAKE IT RIGHT NEW ORLEANS PROTOTYPE


CONCEPT

Pugh + Scarpa's Make it Right (MIR) home seeks to redefine


thh e concept of a home into a flexible, multifunctional and
add aptable space addressing the needs of today's modern
faa mily, on a limited budget. Offering shelter and comfort, the
M IR home breaks the prescriptive mold of the traditional home
byy creating public and private "zones" in which private space
iss deemphasized, in favor of large public living areas. The
orr ganization of the space is intended to transform the way
pee ople live-away from a reclusive, isolating layout towards a
faa mily-oriented, interactive space.

The inspiration for the home came from American patchwork


quu ilting traditions, exemplified by the Gee's Bend abstract
gee ometric style-which is itself influenced by newspaper- and
m agazine-collages used for insulation on the inside walls of
hoo mes in the early rural American South. Recycled wooden
paa llets are repositioned here as a patchworked shade screen
w rapping the building, an innovative alternative to expensive
faa çade materials that lends its own unique character and
tee xture. The visually expressive pallets impart an imperfect,
roo ugh-hewn individuality that we find particularly appealing.
W e are working with local manufacturers to ensure the
vii ability of this cost-effective and sustainable off-the-shelf
prr oduct, easily obtainable and readily replaceable. The pallet
w rapping is joined by decoratively perforated cement board on
thh e east and west façades, providing both shade and privacy
w hile allowing views out and dappled, indirect daylight and
brr eezes to enter. All the exterior elements will combine and
inn terweave, emerging as a distinctive pattern-making

On the south side, a generous exterior porch with deep overhangs and a shade
screen provides passive solar protection for the building's interior.

Similarly, openings on the east and west sides are protected with deeper
overhangs, vertical screens, and porches.
Pugh + Scarpa's approach to Cradle to Cradle suu stainability begins with passive
solar design strategies such as locating and orr ienting the building to control

climate in several ways:
The non-structural exterior skin-made from recycled wood pallets and cement
board-offers shading and a thermal break to the building structure, providing
relief from direct solar heat gain.

High ceilings and abundant cross ventilation allow heat to escape the building's
interior. Cooling airflow inside the home is enhanced by ceiling fans, a direct

The interior organization separates living and sleeping areas into two zones,
permitting them to be independently conditioned. This compartmentalized
strategy means that more efficient systems can be used, increasing
sustainability and cost savings to the homeowner. The home's high ceilings
promote an airy, spacious ambiance, and will be less reliant on artificial lighting.
