Spark Design currently holds a term contract with Cook Inlet Housing Authority (CIHA). As part of the term contract, Spark Design was enlisted to assist with the design and development of a 5-plex in Anchorage’s Mountain View district. Each unit features two bedrooms, a living room, a dining room, kitchen, and a one car garage. CIHA’s funding for this project required that the design meet AHFC’s Five Star Plus Energy Rating for homes. CIHA has found that utilizing materials that are durable, yet warm and inviting provide the most value to the project in the long run. This has led to a design solution that utilizes cement fiber board exterior siding and durable flooring that can withstand Anchorage’s harsh weather. Spark Design and Cook Inlet Cook Inlet Housing Authority share a strong belief in providing quality design at an affordable price to Anchorage’s economically disadvantaged families.
