'Quad Space Home' Architecture Thesis

University of Buffalo Reporter

A reader sent us this story from the University of Buffalo Reporter that looks at Quad Space — a home in Buffalo’s Black Rock neighborhood that four UB architecture students renovated for their thesis project.

After purchasing the run-down property for $6,500 at a public auction, students Michael-John Bailie, Paul Dudkowski, Ernest Ng and Dan Stripp spent a year and about $36,000 transforming the small home. Although it measures less than 700 square feet, it features a bathroom, parlor, four bedrooms and a kitchenette.

The protruding cubes are the private bedrooms and all measure "7-by-7-by-7.5 foot space, conforming to New York’s minimum requirements for the width, length and height of bedrooms"
