Chinatown Micro Housing

Chinatown Micro Housing is a proposal for affordable housing in Vancouver's Chinatown neighbourhood. The unit is designed based on the fact that one person can only be in one room at any given time. Using sliding panels, the unit can be configured to a variety of room types. In theory, the usable square footage of the unit then becomes much larger than its physical footprint. Project completed while studying architecture at the University of British Columbia.
