e-architect published Studio ST Architect’s design for micro homes for essential workers. We proposed to build these homes in central urban locations utilizing the void spaces that some Manhattan luxury condominiums are building in order to increase building heights and sell units on higher floors. We demonstrate the increased density when converting huge apartments into smaller units.
“New York City is a financial, intellectual, and innovative center. We now see that its strength depends not only on its financial stability and profit margins, but also on its ability to withstand catastrophic unexpected events. It is our moral responsibility to create more equitable housing plans for the city.
MicroPolis celebrates the city’s diversity by increasing equity and valuing the range of people needed to make the city thrive. Adding affordable housing units throughout the city’s higher-end buildings neighborhoods will make New York City more integrated, resilient, and equitable.”
