Parker House (Biloxi Model Homes)
Biloxi Model Homes Program
Karen Parker was in the process of moving when her home was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. This unfortunate timing made her ineligible for aid, as she could not prove she was an owner-occupant of the house when Katrina struck.
As part of the Biloxi Model Homes program, Architecture for Humanity paired the Parker family with architect Brett Zamore and provided design services and financial assistance for the construction of the Parkers’ new home. The architect worked closely with Karen to design a house that met the needs of her family of seven. Implementing hurricane-resistant construction, the house draws upon regional building typologies, and sits above flood-hazard levels.
