Kansas City Habitat for Humanity House

Architects and architecture schools often get involved with Habitat for Humanity projects and the results are somewhat a mixed bag in terms of the overall success of the projects. I know from past experiences that there can be a lot a of personal, political and institutional hurdles that come into play when straying away from Habitat's standard set of plans (not to mention the fact that volunteers need to actually be able to build the design), so it's great to see successful collaborations like the one between El Dorado and Heartland Habitat featured in this article from 'Architect' Magazine. I think it also does a good job of playing well with the surrounding neighborhood, which I'm a big proponent of.
