Over the next six years or more,
OregonBILDS plans to develop a modest parcel of land in West Eugene. This site, in an existing residential neighborhood, is being donated by Housing and Community Services Agency of Lane County (HACSA). There is a city bus stop a half block from the north edge, a city bike path at the southern edge, and an improved city street along the west. The first OregonBILDS house will be constructed on the northernmost portion of the site, and each subsequent year a house will be designed and constructed immediately to the south.
An early goal for the project will be to explore the cultural, ecological, and logistical opportunities and limitations found at the building site. The team will then integrate a livable and sustainable building into the existing context.
