Floating Community received a Honor Award from AIA Maryland and a SARA National Design Award

Winstanley Architects and Planners is proud to announce that Floating Communities has received an Honor Award for Urban Design & Master Planning from the AIA Maryland Chapter, as well as a SARA National Design Award.

This project provides a vision and plans for a series of floating communities ranging from a small community of 25 homes in an existing urban marina in downtown Washington, DC to a large 84 home new community in Woodbridge. The proposed plans document a net-zero development of homes ranging from 1,500 gsf to 3,000 gsf each constructed on a concrete “float” foundation in a remote location and brought in by a barge and assembled to create a vibrant and integrated community. Power, water, and sewage are all part of the discussion as well as common facilities and shore-based support functions.
