THE ALLEY HOUSE - BSU FALL 2022

201 N. Temple Ave Indianapolis, IN

FIRST PLACE OVERALL: DOE DESIGN BUILD SOLAR DECATHLON

SOCIETY OF REGISTERED ARCHITECT (SARA) NATIONAL AWARD RECIPIENT

The Alley House is a part of the Department of Energy’s International Solar Decathlon Design Build Competition in which 10 categories are judged: Architecture, Engineering, Market Analysis, Durability and Resilience, Embodied Environmental Impact, Integrated Design, Occupant Experience, Comfort and Environmental Quality, Energy Performance, and Presentation. The duplex has been worked on by an interdisciplinary team of BSU students over the course of four semesters (Fall 21’ - Spring 23’). 

Located on the Near Eastside of Indianapolis in low-income neighborhood of Englewood, the home addresses the missing middle housing crisis we face in the United States and provides affordable living for the residents. The duplex has a high performing envelope, takes use of passive design strategies, and is net zero-energy in the West unit. 


My responsibilities on the project began in the Fall of 2022. I took on the role of Team Lead for that semesters team, where I was responsible for the coordination of 15 fellow students. I was also the primary lead for the Embodied Environmental Impact category, community engagement, and shading device design. In the Spring of 2023, I have been given the responsibilities of completing the as-built drawings along with another fellow student, as well as, creating the final documentation for the Embodied Environmental Impact category.
