Midtown Collective Modular Housing
This project reimagines vacant office spaces in Midtown Manhattan as collective, modular housing units. For my site at 641 Lexington Ave., I examined how modules could be inserted into an existing building with minimal structural impact and a high level of flexibility. Each unit consists of prefabricated walls, and each wall further breaks down into interchangeable panels. As a family grows or wants more space, additional modules can be connected to their existing space.
