We’re at Dwell on Design today to give attendees a first look at home designs for our Fort Peck project. If you’re not at Dwell, you can check out the renderings below. We’re thrilled to share this great work with our friends around the world.
Make It Right is partnering with the Sioux and Assiniboine tribes of Fort Peck, Montana to build sustainable homes on their reservation. This year we will build the first twenty Cradle to Cradle-inspired, LEED Platinum homes for tribal members in need of housing. Currently, more than 600 people are waiting for homes.
Architects and designers from GRAFT, Sustainable Native Communities Collaborative, Architecture for Humanity, Method Homes and Living Homes spent four days meeting with tribal members before developing their designs.
See their beautiful designs below – and click here to support our work with Native American tribes.
