Residential Architecture and Landscape Design

LA VETA AVENUE CONCEPT-MICRO-UNITS

Scope: New Construction: Unit 1: 350 Square Feet / Unit 2: 550 Square Feet

Status: Concept

This project was designed during the last housing boom (2000-2005).  With housing prices rapidly escalating on a daily basis, this project was an answer to a problem that was becoming more common: Affordable housing/living.

Two residences were designed for this 0.11 acre infill site.  Both units have garages and are three levels.  These two units would be combined such that a total of 7 units, 5 of one type and 2 of the other, would be on the site. 

The first unit contains a single car garage and a total of 350 square feet.  The second unit had parking for two cars and is a total of 550 square feet.  While the total living space is small for these units, the floor plans were extremely flexible to address the need for multiple activities in all spaces.  Both units also have ample deck space.
