Design Matters: How Small Space Design Leads to Large Outcomes

Design plays a significant role in the creation and development of individual accessory dwelling units (ADUs), and in the development of the entire ADU market. In this session, leading ADU designers will share practical approaches for the unique design challenge of doing more with less. What are the benefits of attached and detached ADU designs? How do you site an ADU with a meaningful relationship to the main house and property master plan? How can design offer the flexibility to accommodate long term living, short term rentals, and aging in place with accessible features? Hear multiple perspectives on these questions and more, and learn how thoughtful small space design can propel the whole market forward.
