nARCHITECTS win adAPT NYC Competition

Yesterday NY City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced that the team of Monadnock Development LLC, Actors Fund Housing Development Corporation, and nARCHITECTS was selected as the winner of the adAPT NYC Competition. The pilot program, launched in July 2012, charged competitors with the task of designing the city’s first micro-unit apartment building, which will be built on City-owned land at 335 East 27th Street in Manhattan.

The winning proposal called 'My Micro NY’ will create 55 new micro-units measuring between 250-370 square feet, 40 percent of which will be affordable beyond the competitive market rents, designed to optimize space and maximize the sense of openness.

The winning scheme edged out competitors, excelling in the criteria of layout and design with desirable features like 9’-10” floor-to-ceiling heights and Juliette balconies that provide an abundance of access to light and air. Notably, the project will also be the first multi-unit building in Manhattan to be built using modular construction, with the modules prefabricated locally by Capsys at the Brooklyn Naval Yard.
