The first ever Micro-Apartment Tower in New York City. See the photos below!
New York is a city with great buildings, so we get very excited everytime a new one appears on the skyline and we just had to share it with you. See this design by LUXXU inspired by one of the greatest building in NYC.
nArchitects, a New York architecture firm, release new photos from one of their newest projects: their Micro-Apartment tower. Their goal was to create an affordable alternative in big cities’ (such as New York) housing market.
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.
Located in Kips Bay neighborhood, in Manhattan, the building was renamed Carmel Place. It was previously known as My Micro NY.
The units are characterized for being small studios with a lot of natural lighting. The units also feature Juliette balconies. They are tiny but certainly very charming.
Although the units were build thinking of lower-income tenants, the building offers typical luxury amenities, such as gym, lounge, community room and a rooftop terrace.
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.
