Winning Design Of NYC Micro-Apartments Unveiled
'My Micro NY’ units feature two separate zones, a ‘toolbox’ with a kitchen, bathroom and storage space, and a ‘canvas’ with a flexible living and sleeping area.
The adAPT NYC Competition challenged designers to create micro-apartments for young, single professionals, and the winner was announced this week by Mayor Bloomberg. ‘My Micro NY’ was proposed by a development team composed of Monadnock Development LLC, Actors Fund Housing Development Corporation, and nARCHITECTS.
The project will create 55 new micro-units on a City-owned site at 335 East 27th Street in Manhattan. 40% of these will be available to low and middle-income New Yorkers.
