Neotraditional paired home / duplex / semi-detached house

Neotraditional paired home / duplex / semi-detached house

Dan T.
Description
Here's an example of a paired house, a type of duplex or semi-detached house that's increasingly common in traditional; neighborhood development (TND) projects in the Denver/Boulder/Fort Collins area in Colorado, and the Calgary and Edmonton areas in Alberta. The architectural style of this model wouldn't be out of place in Midwest, Northeast, or Pacific Northwest states. I used the Dark House model by NoahSacks as a base for the building form -- this isn't a simple "recolor". I gutted the model, reduced the footprint of the right half, changed the cladding to a more "middle America" Colonial/Craftsman look, changed the roof pitch to 8:12 to drop the height above grade below 35'/11 m (in many zoning codes in the US, the maximum building height in residential zones), added a basement, and added a plausible window pattern on the side and rear elevations (some codes have minimum wall transparency/fenestration requirements). I made this model for form-based zoning code illustration. All elevations are detailed, but otherwise the model is a shell -- there's floors and ceilings, and a 6"/15 cm thick exterior wall, but no rooms or stairwells. EDIT 25 February 2017 - got rid of the window wells, and did some general tidying up. EDIT 27 February 2017 - replaced the doors and windows, reducing the file size by about 70%. Base model: NoahSacks Cladding: Certainteed fiber cement. #attached #building #corner_side #duplex #home #house #paired_home #paired_house #residence #semidetached_house #suburban #two_family #zoning
