NYC Micro-Unit Prototype Serves as Blueprint for the Future

The design of micro units like LE1, above, goes against the idea of building for the nuclear family, a trend that architects have been following for years. Now, they’re scaling down to cater to a singles-heavy population, as research shows significant demographic changes around household formation.

Some of the practical details of LifeEdited’s micro-unit prototype include an added guest room with floating bunk beds.

The tiny but functional kitchen employs induction burners and plenty of storage.

The prototype's kitchen features a small breakfast bar that houses a hidden dining table.
