The “Making Room” exhibit closes September 2, and after that, the micro-unit is looking for a new home, according to Sarah Watson of CHPC, who visited us earlier this morning. Watson thinks an office building lobby might be a good place for the unit to live—any landlords interested?
At noon yesterday, we moved into the 325-square-foot micro-apartment on the third floor of the Museum of the City of New York. The apartment is part of an exhibition, “Making Room,” focused on demographic change and housing alternatives. We stayed overnight, avoided being haunted by the ghosts of the museum’s costume collection, and met a few small-living celebrities, architects, and Curbed readers who stopped by to evaluate the small space. Our verdict: pretty livable!
