Tiny Tower

Pennsylvania Architecture studio ISA has designed a ‘tiny tower’ located in Philadelphia's Brewerytown. This slender five-storey building is constructed using a steel-reinforced wood frame that is clad in painted metal across its exterior. Its physical dimensions include 3.6 metres wide, 8.8 metres deep, and 11.5 metres tall. This tower is an example of the redevelopment project in Philadelphia as it’s urban grid includes many under-utilized extra small parcels facing alley streets which are perfect for the project. The ground floor sits slightly below grade, so the building's height is not too obtrusive on the surroundings. A further basement level allows for enough living space within the volume squeezed onto the tight plot. The top two storeys each house a bedroom and bathroom, and the roof terrace provides extra living space when the weather is nice
