This Unique project seeks to revitalize an underutilized mobile home property located in Costa Mesa. The design team determined that a traditional mobile home park would create a sub-optimal scenario for the 1.49 acre site, being in a highly desirable location. Meanwhile, rezoning would introduce unnecessary practical issues. The resulting project is a high concept design which utilizes prefabricated 2-story homes developed under the Title 25 Mobile Home Codes which will have the look and feel of permanent homes. Modern prefabrication technologies and appropriation of contemporary materials and design transmute the notion that mobile home living cannot coincide with luxury and desirability.

Furthermore, an unconventional approach to site planning contains vehicle circulation and parking to one side of the site, creating an opportunity for a centralized amenity court. Residents who prioritize social interaction will choose a dwelling around the amenitized courtyard. Circulating from car to home will be seen as an opportunity to interact with neighbors as they walk past the event lawn, outdoor lounge, and farm-to-table gardens.

The playful architecture expresses concepts of individuality and eclecticism and borrows vernacular from both urban and agrarian architecture. Environmental awareness is expressed through emphasis on upcycling, reuse and DIY aesthetic
