The finalists of the Big Idea’s for Small Lots Competition, organized by AIA New York and the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), will present their work. The program will present the challenges of designing for small lots in New York City and discuss how the winners implemented excellent design practices to meet them. You can read more about the competition here.

Finalists:

Anawan/101 + Kane AUD: “Mass Green Living”

“Mass Green Living” features five units in an approximately 5,900 square-foot building that includes a multi-use, ground-level common area referred to as the “urban garage.” The submission was selected based on its mix of unit types, its adaptability, and the use of smart design features to enhance the living experience for residents.

Michael Sorkin Studio: “Greenfill House as Garden”

“Greenfill House as Garden” proposes seven units in an approximately 4,430 square-foot building. The façade steps back at every level to create a terraced effect. The submission was selected based on its ability to provide outdoor spaces, its clever use of space, and its comprehensive use of sustainable features to minimize the building’s environmental footprint.

OBJ: “Fold and Stack”

“Fold and Stack” features five units in an approximately 5,540 square-foot building organized around an interior courtyard. The submission was selected based on the design’s intelligent use of modular construction, its successful use of double-height spaces to create a vertical community, and its successful integration of lighting and ventilation techniques to create an interior courtyard that also encourages social interaction.

Only If Architecture: “Only If”

“Only If” features seven units in an approximately 4,900 square-foot building. The submission was selected based on its use of innovative built-ins to produce compact functional spaces, its ability to provide seven units that range in size from micro to two-bedrooms, its variable façade treatments, and its ability to exemplify how intentional design can elevate a traditional rowhouse.

Palette Architecture: “More with Less”

“More with Less” is a 3,700 square-foot building that features two units, one of which is a co-living space with four individual rooming units. The submission was selected based on its ability to provide a model for co-living that demonstrates intelligent consolidation and organization of different types of spaces, the way public and private spaces intersect, and for serving as a good example of how a small lot can accommodate modern housing trends.
