12 ADUs by RADAR

Type: Lecture
One of RADAR’s passions is increasing residential density without sacrificing neighborhoods. Enter the accessory dwelling unit.

Garage conversions, building additions, studios, or  “granny flats,” RADAR has long had a love affair with designing ADUs. In summer of 2020, we hosted a well-attended online presentation of 12 ADUs we designed and built, and discussed all the advantages and challenges of adding another unit to a residential property. Project examples included the Gamboge House, an elevated garden unit with a shady outdoor living room underneath, as well as a “universal design” ADU that is accessible for people of all physical abilities.
