A new development, however, will cater for those who don't need a lot of space. Project architect nARCHITECTS says My Micro New York will be the tallest modular construction in Manhattan.
Two years ago, My Micro New York was announced as the the winning proposal of the adAPT NYC competition. The contest was run to help improve the choice within the city's housing market and accommodate its growing population of one- and two-person households. Now, the delivery of the project is well underway.
Tony Saba-Shiber of nARCHITECTS tells Gizmag that the design process required rigorous balancing of the building's space-conscious intention and its eventual aesthetics. Among the limitations were size constraints, code/ setback requirements and modular coordination. Meanwhile, the project is seeking to deliver livability and to maximize the usable area of the apartments through intelligent and efficient design.
