Many communities across the United States are facing housing affordability challenges, most notably in the "Missing Middle" category that encompasses cottage housing, duplexes, triplexes, fourplexes, etc. In this month's blog we take a look at how Clarion planners and code drafters are working with our client communities to encourage housing solutions that fit the unique character and needs of each place.

It's #MissingMiddle Monday! Here's some #rowhouses and a #duplex --both illegal to build on the >50% of metropolitan city land that bans apartments. These bans incentivize sprawl, decrease affordability, and lead to greater climate pollution.

Many Ukrainians leave their country to find jobs abroad. And those who stay struggle to find business financing. HOPE Ukraine offers loans and savings services that empower entrepreneurs like Ludmila (pictured) to invest in their communities, and as they grow, employ others!

It's that time again! #MissingMiddle Monday. Here's a duplex and a fourplex! Would you even notice they're different than the single-detached homes already in apartment-banning zones? Regardless, they're currently illegal in over 50% of each metropolitan city's land in Cascadia--well, except Portland now! We need #housing for all.

Hunting the elusive Missing Middle duplexes and quad-plexes nestled among the little craftsmans and new McMansions in Dallas. The amount of care put into crafting these buildings are what makes them continue to be lovely. Though many multiplexes of the same era have a similar layout or design, it’s the details that make these historic properties timeless favorites. And they’re the only way that any affordable housing still exists in these neighborhoods which are quickly increasing in value, inspiring teardowns and msmansiins. All of these were take on 2 adjacent blocks.of Belmont & Richmond near Abrams Rd. . . . . #missingmiddle #missingmiddlehousing #affordablehousing #mcmansion #historic #historichomes #lakewood #dallas #dallasneighborhoods #duplex #quadplex #theneighborhoodtalk #architecture #lovemycity #exploredallas #urbandesign #newurbanism

The back side of Hill and Dale condos overlooks the Yonge subway line north of Rosedale station. The solid mass containing back of house retail and office functions gives way to a cascading series of residential terraces framed by a dramatic cantilever. 📷 @norsworthyscott . . . #toronto #torontoarchitecture #canadianarchitecture #design #residential #midrise #missingmiddle #ttc #mixeduse #architecturephotography #archdaily #azure #archello #canadianarchitect #dezeen #archinect #architecturaldesign #ig_architecture #archigram

When we say more homes for everyone, we mean: ⠀⠀ More homes for LGBTQIA+ people. ⠀⠀ This is important because the US Fair Housing Act does not protect LGBTQIA+ people from discrimination in finding housing. Only 21 states and Washington, D.C. prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity (hrc.org). ⠀⠀ Tomorrow will be our last post for this series - stay tuned to see what else we’ve got coming up! ⠀⠀ #AustinForYall #ATXCouncil #MissingMiddle #LDCRewrite #MoreHousingPlease #ATX #ipreview via @preview.app

Normally countries shift from agriculture to industries and then to services, but India shifted directly to services. This isn't an achievement but a cause of worry, it is called "the classic structural feature of underdevelopment" by some economists. We as Enactus ARSD under our projects (Project Sugandh, Project Kalakaari and Project Srijan and all the other Enactus teams are working to counter this problem and fulfilling its aim of social entrepreneurship (Making people independent in the process). Kudos to all Enactus teams. #weallwin #enactusarsd #enactus #indianeconomy #missingmiddle #financialcrisis #sectorshift #economy

During weekdays, “My days start at three o’clock in the morning and finishes at ten at night,” says the former CEO of Telkom and First Rand, “at half-past three, I am up [to] check my emails, check what’s happened overnight in the news. . . . “On weekends, my days start at five [in the morning], maybe work for three hours on Saturdays and four to five hours on Sundays.” . . . This sleeping pattern stems from a younger age. “It has become worse as I get older, but I have always been an early morning person,” says the 62-year-old who was born in Newcastle, KwaZulu Natal. . . .

Calling all somebodies. Take a look at your block. Is there an empty lot, a building that needs love, a tree that needs planting, a room that needs renting, an opportunity to start a business? We are a non-profit alliance of city-builders working to bring back the Incremental model of development because if local people who care aren’t strengthening their neighborhoods, who will? #incrementaldevelopment #missingmiddle #neighborhoodrevitalization #communitybuilding #smalldeveloper

Fascinating visit to #tenementmuseum #glasgow. Intact architectural time capsule. Various apartment configurations possible, within a 10 - 12 metre deep plan. Note difference between bed closet and bed recess. At one point Miss Towards shared both the apartment and bed recess with her widowed mother as they had to let the only bedroom out. Now bed recesses outlawed as apartments got too crowded by slumlords. Later apartment configurations with proper bedrooms shown in model. Still dense by sydney standards. Lots of light and outlook to the street. #missingmiddle #Streets

Let’s talk terrace houses. Over the coming weeks will showcase a wide selection of this ubiquitous C19th urban housing type across Sydney. Terraces make fine streets, compact form, tight subdivision, have been affordable, mostly spec-built, issues with damp but easy to update. From grand to super small, from one off to whole streets of them. Which are the smallest, largest, tallest, widest? What have they been adapted to do, which streets have the best array, what are some of quirkiest. What’s their relationship to street? What are some lessons for the ‘missing middle’?

If you've ever travelled to Europe, you've likely walked, driven or rode a bike on a Woonerf. We've brought that concept to this project by creating a space for residents to congregate while also providing a loop for emergency vehicles.⁠ ⁠ Architecture: @gravityarchitecture ⁠ Client: @excelhomes ⁠ Landscape: @818studio ⁠ ⁠ #gravityarchitecture #woonerf #livingstreets #mixeduse #multiresidential #modernliving #missingmiddle #yyc #yycdesign #yycdesigns #yycarchitecture #loversofarchitecture #canadianarchitect #gravarch #gravityarch

Today we set the foundations on the #MonroeSmartHome on 5th and Monroe, keep watching because this home will be built quick!! It’s a small modular urban smart home--the first of its kind in Muskegon! When this home is finished it will stand as a “Show House” for a series of three other modular urban smart homes, built in partnership with the City of Muskegon. Community enCompass (in partnership with the City of Muskegon and Michigan State Housing Development Authority) is investing in affordable housing in core-city Muskegon. We are building modular homes on sites that had homes demolished due to blight. These modular urban smart homes are state of the art, using the same technology used to build any home in Michigan. They are built under factory conditions, to high specs, and delivered to be placed on their foundations. Most importantly, at a time when house prices are rising beyond many neighbors’ reach, these homes will be priced for families earning at or below the area median income (AMI). Some great developments are happening in core-city Muskegon. We are proud to be working with our neighbors to ensure that that development is for everyone! #watchmkg #GoMKG #WatchUsGo #WatchMuskegongo #Muskegon #mi #muskegonmichigan #nonprofit #skeetown #MuskegoMi #muskegonmichigan #community #neighbors #housing #housingmatters #home #realestate #homes #rent #affordablehousing #cities #apartments #affordability #collectivehousing #missingmiddle #missingmiddlehousing #housingforall #housingishealthcare #housingisahumanright

We’ve partnered up with HouseLab for the launch of Concept Space: a visual think space which ‘reimagines suburbia’ through cutting-edge design. Lead by architects and interior designers, each monthly collaboration explores the potential of residential design in Australia.⁠ ⁠ Leading this month’s concept space is Sydney based interior designer Matt Woods who specified a black caviar and stainless-steel Tableau Kitchen System to set the mood. To meet the many requirements of a live/work/play space, Cantilever tailored the single run kitchen system with joinery detailed to key space-saving appliances. We love how the Tableau bar ‘niche’ anchors an aesthetic that translates from home to office.⁠ ⁠ _⁠ #cantileverinteriors #tableaukitchensystem #missingmiddle #residentialdesign #inclusivedesign #apartment #apartmentliving #concrete #smallspaceliving #sustainableliving #smartdesign #homeoffice #workfromhome
