Micro-apartment | Chapman ArchitectsMayor Bloomberg has announced the winner of the adAPT NYC Micro-housing competition.  I wanted to share the plans that I had drawn for the competition.  While the competition brief had recommended “Murphy” beds I thought that was strangely restrictive.  I did not think that the market for this small a unit would be arriving with such a large item as a Murphy bed.  Designing an apartment that worked only after an expensive and bulky purchase seemed odd.  I was striving for a more flexible layout.  Other features include a balcony and cross ventilation because the common halls are open air. georgia
