architecture disney golf course housing
Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida - 1972








THE PROJECT
As a designer with WED Enterprises, Walt Disney's architectural department, to create preliminary designs for several theme-oriented golf course homes
for purchase/lease by corporations for employee incentive vacations and group business meetings at Walt Disney World.
The architect's assignment was to develop several contemporary home designs to be located in a "American" neighborhood.
Other designers on the team worked on home designs for other "international" neighborhoods with traditional French and German architectural themes.

THE SITE
A large, virtually flat, wooded site next to a golf course with several theme-oriented neighborhoods.
The design team traveled to WDW Florida to inspect the site and work on the project (along with a couple smaller assignments).


            


Design Program
The Program called for homes with two or three self-contained family suites with baths and sitting areas,
a large central Kitchen, Dining, and Livingroom area with access to patios and large screened "Florida" rooms,
and an integral covered carport.
Homes were calculated to sell for from $80,000 to $95,000 in 1972.
