Description by Interface Studio Architects
Unlocking the development potential of tiny sites is critical to increasing the supply of attainable housing for a diverse range of lifestyles. Tiny Tower maximizes its modest 12’ by 29’ lot with a 1250 SF, six level home. Although it measures only 38’ in height, Tiny Tower is organized like a full-scale skyscraper. Linked by a strong core of vertical circulation, each level is similar in size and quality, allowing for flexible programming. With a kitchen at the lower level and tucked away bathrooms on upper ones, each floor is free to define live, work and play in multiple configurations. A front justified folded plate metal stair provides a dramatic, light-filled circulation stack that affords surprising views inside and out.
