Their ‘Live Between Buildings’ project contributes to a denser, more sustainable city of the future. It proposes a new way to solve housing shortages in cities by placing 5 foot-wide homes in the narrow spaces between existing buildings.

The small lofts have a minimal footprint and facade surface. Mastalski and Storjohann’s sketches for the proposal show the range of possible typologies and the available interesting building gaps in countries around the world. Click through to see some of the design images:
