XS House, located in Philadelphia’s Chinatown neighborhood, slots seven apartments into an 11-food-wide by 93-foot long site, strategically occupying expanded bays, mezzanines, and bi-level upper units for a total of  5,000 square feet. Lighting in the apartments needed to be strategically placed as to not take up the already limited space while also complementing the urban architecture.
