Last year I photographed Denver’s first new micro unit apartment building designed by Nate Jenkins with Denver based Oz Architecture.
The building appeals to the minimalist in me with its 97 micro apartments averaging 320 sq ft each and creatively designed to maximize space while also offering modern amenities like in unit washer dryer and regular size kitchen appliances.
The architect, Nate Jenkins, was the perfect guy for the job as he and his wife live in a micro space, a 650 sq ft ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit) he designed that sits above his garage. I photographed the space a couple years a go and Modern in Denver published a nice piece about it.
As for the Economist I particularly like the exterior materials used, inspired by the historic homes of the area, and the window framing and placement. The facade really sings in this late afternoon photograph.
If you want to live in one of Denver’s best urban locations and pay 2002-ish Denver rental rates around $1,000, then the Economist is worth a look.
