STREAM Collaborative was invited to finalize the building permit applications for all 40 homes designed by Coterre who is based in California. The design of the community focuses on small homes complemented by the social dimensions and shared common facilities of Co-housing. This is the third and final neighborhood of the world renowned EcoVillage at Ithaca. STREAM Collaborative managed the design modifications along with Taitem Engineering during the construction administration phase of the project and served as the Architect of Record.
