uu house was conceived as a basic set of architectural, environmental and ecological parts. These parts are optimized for the modern realities of urban and suburban dwelling, but retain the flexibility to engage the individual owner in customizing and personalizing the finished home.

At it's core, the uu house is an affordable, eco-friendly dwelling with a minimal foundation footprint that adapts to existing city street grids and unconventional lot parcels. It can accommodate growing families by expanding vertically rather than horizontally.
