YIMBY doesn’t often report on filings for single-family residences, but today we have news for 204-23 46th Road, near the border of Auburndale and Bayside, in Queens. New building applications for the site show the home will have a total construction area of only 1,541 square feet, but the innovative design by Dennis George Architect promises to make up for the size with an innovative layout and a rather attractive exterior.

The lot is irregularly shaped, and sited on the intersection of 46th Road and the Clearview Expressway’s service road, just to the west of the Expressway.

The architect describes the appearance thusly:

The structure is clad with darkened cedar siding with large glazing used behind vertical louvered screens at the front and rear facade to create a sense of privacy as a result of the corner site location.

The description of the project also notes it is being made out of shipping containers. While the actual square footage on applications totals just over 1,500 square feet, the home will feel substantially roomier, with private enclosed patios on both the ground and attic levels. There will be three bedrooms in all.

No completion date has been announced, but with the site already vacant, construction should proceed swiftly. The architect is also the owner of the site.
