For Immediate Press Release May 3, 2010

Save the date May 24th for the most innovative housing event this summer.
Method Homes and Infiniti RED are joining forces to promote public awareness around Seattle’s newest affordable housing option for urban infill by hosting a Backyard Cottage Design Challenge open to the public taking place later this month in Greenwood.

This event will showcase the over 35 local architects and designers who are combining good design with livability and sustainability. Event goers will have the opportunity to view all the entries, meet the designers and participate in our award ceremony. Winners will be selected by a jury of public and professional designers.

Awards will be given for the following 5 categories:

1. Overall Best Design
2. Honorable Mention for Overall Best Design
3. Most Innovative
4. Most Sustainable
5. Most adaptable to different sites and programs

Backyard cottages can be built on city lots over 4000sf and are a well-designed infill option for adding more density to the urban landscape. Many homeowners are now exploring constructing these for additional income, extended family or downsizing. We encourage those interested to come meet the top designers of Backyard Cottages.
