Bridging the Gap

It’s our belief that everyone deserves a safe and stable place to call home. SquareOne seeks to bridge the often insurmountable gap between the street and conventional housing with a variety of simple, cost-effective housing options.

Small Footprint

The American home has more than doubled in size since 1950, even as fewer people are living in them. SquareOne returns to simple, compact alternatives. In doing so, we believe we can not only address the housing gap, but also embody a vision for a more sustainable future.

Community Building

We go beyond building individual tiny houses. SquareOne builds democratic communities in which each person has a voice in shaping how their community is managed—creating a foundational sense of ownership on which the village thrives.

Collaborative Initiatives

Our initiatives engage and involve a multitude of local partnerships. This broad collaboration demonstrates what’s possible when a community comes together around a common cause. By utilizing the existing resources around us, we can quickly create more housing opportunities for those in need.
