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.
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.
The digitization of our world has deep implications for the housing industry. What happens when our stuff disappears, when our media is in the cloud, when our food is delivered on demand, when our cars are summoned by the press of a touchscreen? How much space will we need? With less stuff and space, will we have a different cultural connection to our homes? How will the housing industry shift?
