The People

The SURE HOUSE team is made up of a diverse group of creative, dedicated students from across Stevens Institute of Technology, all supported by a committed group of industry and non-profit partners and sponsors. This multidisciplinary project, spanning 2 years, allows students to engage with the most pressing issues facing the building industry today, namely: how to create sustainable, beautiful, and resilient buildings. Through a rigorous ‘learning-by-doing’ approach, students, guided by committed faculty, are exposed to the design and engineering process in a unique way which allows them to develop innovative approaches to even the toughest of problems.

our partners make our work possible

SURE HOUSE is a new direction for coastal housing. Our home is a model for vulnerable shore communities and demonstrates new methods for building a safe, secure home. Innovative flood proofing and structural details allow our home to retain a connection with the street and the surrounding neighborhood. The home is designed to function well in winter and summer coastal conditions.
