SPRING pushed the boundaries of architectural and interior design through an extensive visualization project for the construction of a microhousing apartment complex in New York. Aimed at providing innovative design solutions, this project provides affordable housing options while promoting sustainability, diversity & inclusivity, and community engagement.

Three different design prototypes have been developed. The first is a modern metropolitan building located near a transit line within the city. The second is a contemporary classic building with a pool and communal grounds, situated within biking distance to public transportation in the outskirts of the metropolitan area. The third prototype is a standalone micro-home designed for a potential block of micro-houses in a suburban setting outside the city. The chosen building would serve as a model for future microhousing projects across the country.

The microhousing project by SPRING Architecture + Design is an inspiring pursuit that challenges traditional housing norms. It promotes affordability, sustainability, and community engagement while encouraging creativity, minimalism, and social connections. It reimagines the possibilities of small-scale living and offers a fresh approach to housing.

Art is a universal language that breaks barriers and amplifies individual voices that collectively shape our community.

Rye Arts Center’s commitment to Diversity, Equity, Access & Inclusion resonates in its latest construction of a 3-level central hub for art, nature, and community engagement. Designed by Spring, this sustainable endeavor will embrace eco-conscious design, including solar energy collection, and modern architecture.

The building boasts modern architecture with glass elements, prioritizing connectivity to the surrounding environment, while the entrance directly faces the original, existing Rye Arts Center—intentionally creating a harmoniously connected environment for people of all ages to gather, learn, and create.
