ODA new york has added to its portfolio of distinctive residential projects with a ‘pixelated’ concrete development just steps away from MoMA PS1 in long island city. located in queens, new york, ‘2222 jackson’ is an an 11-story complex, which contains a total of 175 units as well as a range of on site amenities. the form of the project responds to the city’s zoning constraints, resulting in an exterior that comprises a series of extruded concrete volumes topped with terraces.

conceived as a simple modular grid, ODA new york’s design comprises of a sequence of three simple units, each 12 feet wide. studio apartments are 32 feet in length, and occupy one bay, while the one and two bedrooms are each 25 feet long, occupying two and three bays respectively. the increased length of each studio apartment projects beyond the façade offering mid-facade ‘corner’ windows, as well as terraces for the units directly above.

this modular approach not only offers 30% more outdoor space than the un-manipulated footprint would have allowed, but also provides increased flexibility and adaptability in terms of construction. ‘we are always looking for opportunities to redefine some very fundamental aspects of what we’ve come to accept in urban living, and 2222 jackson was our first project with which we began to explore the concept of a vertical village,’ explains eran chen, founder and executive director of ODA new york.
