What Houzz contributors are saying:

Most of the exhibition outside of the full-scale microapartment is devoted to proposals for a variety of new housing types that are not allowed under current laws. For example, small units (less than 400 square feet) are not allowed in most parts of the city, but those might ideally serve the unrepresented demographic. Such is the focus of the adAPT NYC competition.A team led by Deborah Gans proposed extensions to Tudor-style houses in a neighborhood of Astoria, Queens (near where I live, coincidentally). Current laws do not allow the proposed extensions, which are envisioned as accessory units for the young or old. The colored roofs highlight the now-illegal areas that would add space to single-family houses.
