Modern Habitat

Take a drive near the Outsider's House Museum today and you might notice some interesting new additions to the area. A pair of new homes with low-slope rooflines and simple lines are sprinkled amongst the bungalows of Tulsa, Oklahoma's Crutchfield Neighborhood. 

No, these are not hipsters escaped from Lortondale.

The new homes are a project of Tulsa Habitat for Humanity in conjunction with Standard Panel, a Tulsa-based company. The designs are obviously Mid-Century Modern-inspired, but that's not just to be trendy. The plans are optimized to take advantage of Standard Panel's proprietary panel system to simplify construction and reduce waste. 

Each home is a three-bedroom, two-bath design with a carport and small storage area. An open floorplan combines the living room with the dining/kitchen space. The insulated structural panels used in the construction are resistant to mold and termites, plus reduce energy and maintenance costs.

The first Midmod-inspired Habitat house is located at 1015 N. Quincy Avenue in Tulsa.
