Profession: Architect. Michi and her partner, Yen Ha, are the principals behind Front Studio, one of the only Asian-women owned architectural partnerships in NYC. We spotted their work early on in 2004, loved their aesthetic and have been tracking them since.
Best Use of Space:
After designing small bathrooms in NYC for years, I've always wondered why they don't make these slim toilets w. sinks and sinks here (above); they've been around for at least a few decades in Japan. And in looking for a photo, I found the slim sink (only protrudes 3 7/8" from the wall)!
Boy could I have used this in a few of my projects.
