New York

Team: Spring Architecture + Design, MAXX Properties Real Estate

Project Type: Residential

Size: Approx. 50,000 ft²

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.

SPRING collaborated on the architecture and interior design of a new modern home and landscape that embodies the perfect blend of functionality and aesthetics.

Located in the serene beauty of Sag Harbor, this home and landscape integrate natural elements like wood, glass, and stone. The exterior boasts a sleek shiplap and stone siding, while the interior showcases meticulous craftsmanship with custom wood paneling and thoughtfully selected finishes. Its 60-foot infinity pool is a highlight with a stunning stone water wall that flows into a basin. The outdoor spaces include decks, multiple patios, an outdoor kitchen, and a dining area, while interior spaces seamlessly blend open-air spaciousness with cozy comfort. A high-ceilinged family room, complete with a dual fireplace, invites relaxation and intimate gatherings, while the extensive glass windows and doors frame breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape.

In this design, SPRING harmonized practicality and beauty, creating an extraordinary home that is both eco-conscious and irresistibly appealing.
