Pine White Grove Community

Pine White Grove is a community in Eugene, Oregon that aims to provide an affordable, sustainable, safe space for climate or political refugees. By creating modular ‘micro-units,’ Pine White Grove provides rapid shelter options for refugees that are eventually customizable and adaptable to various household sizes and needs. The community also features a public community center where residents can foster relationships with their neighbors, take care of laundry, dining, bathing, relax, and have access to a small library and resources area. The site layout situates the micro-units on the East side of the site, allowing for more privacy while the community center on the West side serves as a threshold into this community. The ultimate goal is to create a design that is materially efficient, structurally sound, resourceful, and one that encourages a sense of comfort, security, ownership, and community.
