CITYSPACES MicroPAD
Prototype

Lowney Architecture worked with Patrick Kennedy at Panoramic Interests to design the MicroPAD (Prefabricated Affordable Dwelling) prototype. As a new way to address the growing number of homeless people in the Bay Area, MicroPad provides a means to create high-quality supportive housing quickly and economically.

Each steel module can be constructed in a factory, shipped to a project site, and assembled into a multi-story residential building in just days. This process allows the quality of construction to be checked in a controlled environment, reduces the construction impact on the surrounding area, and most importantly shortens the project schedule.

The steel modules are designed to provide all necessary living amenities within a compact footprint of 160 SF. The units include a sleeping/living area, private bathroom and kitchenette. They also feature easy-to-clean green building materials, healthy 24/7 air filtration, and exceed state of CA seismic, building code, and accessibility code standards.

SIZE:
160 SF

KEY FEATURES:
Self-contained unibody steel construction
