Cliff Swallow Apartment
The Cliff Swallow Apartment addresses the need for new affordable housing in New York City by activating underutilized space in established high-density neighborhoods. It is a temporary micro-unit that can be attached to the sides of existing buildings without the need for new construction. By infusing affordable housing into established and highly desirable areas, the Cliff Swallow Apartment creates a more diverse and vibrant community. Additionally, creating even higher density in already dense areas reduces the stress on mass transit systems and prevents the wasteful effects of suburban sprawl.
