NY MICRO PREFAB APPT BUILDING

n an effort to address housing concerns throughout the city,  held the adAPT NYC Competition in search for a micro-unit apartment building that would be developed into a new housing model for the “small household population”.  The winner and five finalists were announced earlier this week, revealing a sharp focus on consolidating various living areas to save space and resolving to give multi-functionality where ever possible.  There is also an emphasis on community in each of the proposals, making up for the small units with more public amenities within the building.  Join us after the break to take a closer look at the projects.
