Trailer Parks as Models for Affordable Housing

Mountain_View4
 

From the Atlantic:

A well-designed trailer park might seem an oxymoron, but the much-maligned building typology has a lot of potential for an appealing alternative to more conventional low income housing.  No surprise to see this happening in the particularly enlightened City of Santa Monica . . . which purchased the Mountain View Mobile Home Park to preserve it for affordable housing a decade ago. Los Angeles-based Marmol Radziner Prefab won the contract to transform the park’s aging trailers and mobile homes into stylish and sustainable homes.

The homes range in size from 384 to 1,200 square feet and cost between $25,000 to $72,000 to build.
