Mar 10th, 2008

Enterprise Housing for San Francisco: The Future of Home-Based Family Businesses made the case for housing policies rooted in the needs of working families of modest means. As housing designed to accommodate living and working in the same space, Enterprise Housing increases the efficiency and comfort of home-based workers, thereby increasing the feasibility of working at home.

The 2007 publication was developed by Asian Neighborhood Design and the School of Business and Management at University of San Francisco.

She also writes of the role of housing design in community development.
