Entry Description

This short-term business residence presents micro-units of
40 m2, 50 m2, and 60 m2 . By pulling layers of typical
housing towers in opposing directions, the units maintain
their size but are stretched into favorable proportions with
views and daylight on both sides, excellent cross-ventilation,
and a strong sense of community through the central
courtyard, roof terraces, and play pods. The position of the
stretched layers create continuity of the building’s concrete-
encased steel mega-brace that encircles the courtyard. The
mega-brace supports a shelf-like matrix of walls and floor
slabs that define each unit. The units are inserted into each
shelf as wooden shells with a bathroom on one side and a
kitchen on the other. A movable wall shifts within defining a
bedroom or a living room. The wall includes a bed,
nightstands, couch, television mount, task lights, and
storage. The interior and exterior facades are composed of
frameless IGUs.
