Cass Community Tiny Homes is located at Woodrow Wilson and Elmhurst streets on a two-and-a-half-block parcel of land that CCSS owns just north of its main campus. Community residents have access to programs on CCSS’s main campus (just a short walk away), including home ownership training, a medical clinic and mental health services, a gym, a library, and transportation services. While other cities have used tiny homes to house the homeless, this creative rent-to-own program is the first of its kind in Detroit, and possibly, in the country.
Throughout the 1950s and ’60s, homebuilders saw the open living plan as a way to efficiently design a home using less square footage. Ranch and split-level homes became very popular. Today, architecture and interior design still take their cues from economic considerations, but they also are influenced by cultural norms and a desire for convenience (multitasking, anyone?). We have blurred gender roles; both parents simultaneously share cooking and child-care responsibilities. And we live in a tech- and media-driven world in which catching up on the day’s news during dinner is not only acceptable, but expected.
