Hong Kong, China
Urban Renewal Authority
This project, prepared for the Urban Renewal Authority addresses the issue of a mini- mum dwelling size in metropolitan Hong Kong. Due to a steadily increasing population and relatively small developable land area, the region’s housing market is becoming increasingly unaffordable. In order to combat this phenomenon, our team found that a unit size of less than 300 square feet may provide an affordable yet comfortable option for those wishing to live in a Central Business District. To achieve a high quality of life in shrinking spaces, we suggest that future developments of this size employ intelligent layout design, space saving furniture, and multiple storage options while at the same time creating shared facilities that nurture community.
