Small Spaces for Big Lives

Urban living spaces are growing increasingly smaller in size especially in the city centres of bigger cities. This is primarily where the Millennials want to live, though the higher costs of rental for spaces in the city centre forces them to become innovative. People reuse terraces, narrow tube houses, and basements of existing buildings, to find living space that is more affordable.
This semester we are going to look at one of those scenarios, where the Millennials are now reclaiming roof-tops, where, these single room spaces on the topmost floor of existing buildings helps them connect with nature, yet living close to the heart of the city, whilst living far from the crowded streets below.
