The building has over 35.000 square feet and 55 units. Although they’re all tiny, they vary in size and composition. The design of the building is extremely modern, as you may guess it’s one that looks like stairs in tones that go from light beige to brown.

The apartments have been created with the idea of a micro living space that is functional and comfortable, so the firm worked with Resource Furniture, towards creating a built-in piece able to convert the living room into a bedroom. And how beautiful is that rug? Find similar ones here.

The firm believes that Micro-Apartments are on the rise, especially in New York, where a housing boom can be observed with many residential towers from top architects, including Zaha Hadid and Álvaro Siza, appearing in the New York skyline.
