THE STACK addresses the need for moderate-income housing in Manhattan. It finds opportunity on a small, difficult urban site through the alternative method of offsite construction. Offsite construction offers an accelerated schedule and shorter financing period, turning sites that might otherwise be considered risky and turning them into opportunities. It is a pilot project for developing a quality and economically viable housing solution to strategically rebuilding and filling gaps in outmoded housing infrastructure in the city.
Although not necessary to its construction methodology, the design of this 7-storey residential building expresses its offsite modular construction. Each individual unit is legible but also reads as part of a knit-together whole. Inside, different combinations of units provide structural integrity, as well as a diverse selection in the kinds of layouts for tenants.

what side of the bed you sleep on
and who broke your heart so bad you didn’t want to…
