Chinatown Micro-housing
Studio Housing Project

Chinatown Micro-housing focused on providing 140 living micro units that don’t feel so tiny. This project achieved that by designing geometrically complex building form through using Marching Cubes algorithm that resulted in exciting unit layouts and unique window patterns for each unit. Plenty of outdoor space was also ensured for micro units for safety and convenience. 

The core idea of the design of the project was to revitalize LA’s Chinatown and put it back on the map as the vibrant and colorful part of the town that it was meant to be.
