How Large is 300 Square Feet?

ny-tiny-apartments

I volunteered to do this graphic for USA Today after seeing Wendy Koch’s planned story on micro apartments in New York City. The idea behind the project is to provide low- to middle-income New Yorkers with decent living space at affordable prices. The idea may catch on in other U.S. cities.

I was intrigued by the architect’s dual-use plans for the apartments and wanted to show two things: 1) a common reference point for 300 square feet and, 2) how convertible furniture was used to change room functions.

I designed the graphic’s appearance and researched the information, and Frank Pompa, the artist, did his usual amazing job.
