Monad Rupert is a four-storey affordable housing project with retail at the ground level that is being developed on a single-family lot.

This 12-unit project is a permutation of Intelligent City’s Platforms-for-Life system, a generative mixed-use urban housing system.

The process is driven by digital design, adaptation, and collaboration to produce affordable integrated communities that meet the highest sustainability and livability criteria.

This mass timber Passive House project is designed as a catalyst to activate an area in need of urban renewal.

The highly livable courtyard typology has compact units with double-sided aspect to provide ample daylight, cross-ventilation, and operation without any cooling load. Similar to all Platforms-for-Life projects, Monad Rupert is pursuing net-zero energy, carbon-neutral objectives.
