Ithaka Studio has recently announced that they are branching out into the design of Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs). This move comes in response to the growing demand for affordable housing in urban areas, and the firm’s desire to provide sustainable and aesthetically pleasing solutions. What is an ADU? An Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU), also known as a granny flat, is a self-contained living unit on the same property as a primary residence. These units can be attached or detached from the main house and can range from a small studio apartment to a larger living space with multiple rooms. ADUs have become increasingly popular in recent years as a way to provide affordable housing options for families, students, and retirees. Why is Ithaka Studio designing ADUs? Ithaka Studio has always been known for their innovative and sustainable approach to architecture. With the housing crisis in many urban areas, the need for affordable and sustainable housing solutions has become more pressing than ever. By designing ADUs, Ithaka Studio hopes to provide a solution that is both environmentally conscious and aesthetically pleasing.
