LineSync Architecture LTD, the firm of Joseph Cincotta MArch ’88, has been awarded a World Architecture News 2016 Small Spaces Award in the Temporary Category for its project Wheel Pad. This is the first international award for Cincotta and LineSync Architecture LTD, a 11 person firm in the one-stop-light historic village of Wilmington, Vermont owned by Julie Lineberger EdM ’82.

Wheel Pad is a 200 sq.ft. accessible bedroom and bathroom that can be attached to an existing home. It is an affordable, eco-friendly non-toxic, immediately available living space offering privacy, and supporting the independence of individuals with mobility issues. The design comes in both temporary and permanent models. Wheel Pad was started in 2015 to respectfully and supportively provide transitional and permanent housing for anyone needing accessible living accommodations in a socially conscious and environmentally friendly way as economically as possible.
