The 12 cottages at Union Village in Talladega, AL, will be a safe, accessible refuge for deaf and blind residents.

“It gives me a sense of independence,” said a resident of Union Village, a new community for low-income blind, deaf and deaf-blind individuals. A three-phase project, Union Village will consist of 24 all-electric, affordable, accessible homes. The first two duplex-style 475-square-feet tiny homes have been constructed and more are on the way.

We partnered with Presbyterian Home for Children (PHFC) and the Alabama Institute for the Deaf and Blind (AIDB) to create the master plan and designs for these residents.
