Limited downtown real estate and growing demand for apartments catering specifically for singles lead the developer to incorporate furnished micro apartments into this multifamily project. URBANEER worked hand in hand with the developer’s design team to fit out these 375 square foot units.
To add versatility to the space, a Wall Bed sofa was used, which enables the small unit to easily go from sleep to lounge modes. Matching seven foot storage cabinets complement the unit’s one closet. And custom finishes were chosen by the developer’s architect to match the aesthetic of the entire building.
With our products we created a space that was functional and adaptable to the tenant's needs, while yielding higher rent on a square foot basis and leasing faster than conventional units.
We helped the developers design comfortable, attractive, and profitable apartments based on a unit type that is traditionally difficult to inhabit and market.
URBANEER incorporated a number of space-saving solutions to the studios in this ground-up development.
URBANEER has created a systems-based approach to transforming the housing industry that we call Living 3.0. It is an approach that leads to housing that is both accessible to the market and profitable for the builder/developer. It is an approach focused on providing the right housing for the times, using data to design around how people live in the 21st century. It is an approach that understands that getting housing built requires the participation of numerous financial and regulatory entities.
For years, housing has been developed around an insatiable appetite for consumer goods. It has lead huge homes moved further and further from city centers and neighbors. What would happen if our were designed and developed from a people-centered (as opposed to stuff-centered) perspective? These are some of the questions we are out to answer at Urbaneer.
