Cook Inlet Housing Authority’s goal is “Independence through housing”. Through the development of programs and quality housing, they hope to provide a solid foundation for their constituents to enhance their quality of life. As part of a term contract with Cook Inlet Housing Authority, Corvus is providing residential scale design services for the development of three duplexes in the Mountain View neighborhood. The project involved creating simple gardenscapes that are low-maintenance yet enhance the character of the development. A key landscape component was to provide provide warmth and character to the street, but also allow for privacy and a feeling of secure home ownership.
