adAPT: MICRO HOUSING PROTOTYPE
       
     
 This project provides identical 69 small apartments whose size and amenity are  expanded through shared laundry, lounges, dining and recreational space spread  throughout the building.  The circulation is along a naturally lit corridor that ends in a lounge on each floor.  The placement of the fire stair at the center   encourages residents to use it regularly on their way home or to the roof terrace.   
       
     
  By utilizing a single, prototypical , “plug and play,” prefabricated  module, the quality and value benefits of factory production will be realized.  Units are designed for simple field conections and the maximazation of factory completion.     
       
     
 The studio apartment  of  300 sf has zones to extend the real and perceived dimension of  the space: an entry  threshold of storage, a  zone of kitchen and bathroom, a major living room and then a  balcony.      
       
     
     
       
     
 The roof terrace has a laundry, a desk and a large dining room and kitchen that can be reserved by the tenants.
       
     
   Passive and active energy generation achieve energy consumption approximately seventy-five percent below current standards by using: o  versized passive ventilation shafts to the roof, v  ariable refrigerant volume heat pumps, and d  omestic water heated by thermal collectors positioned at the edge of the photovoltaic canopy.      The southern façade of the building of deep terraces with integrated planters and  trellises is designed to eliminate summer solar gain.
