Young Street Micro Suites
About this Project
Small city living with a big city vibe! This 11-unit apartment was constructed using a very efficient panelized wood building method; all floors, walls, and the roof were pre-fabricated offsite and installed using a crane. The wall panels were equipped with double-glazed energy efficient windows and exterior board insulation, providing for an energy efficient envelope.
This building was designed to maximize spatial efficiency, and we think we nailed it. Although the unit footprints were less than 480 square feet, we still managed to fit a full kitchen, bath, laundry and open living/bedroom space within each suite. Large glazing and private balconies make small living feel larger than life!
