Could “mirco apartments” be detrimental to your health? | BSD Realty Worldwide, 24 Dec 2013 [cached]
And Susan Saegert, professor of environmental psychology at the CUNY Graduate Center and director of the Housing Environments Research Group, agrees that the micro-apartments may pose health risks for the elderly and families.
"I've studied children in crowded apartments and low-income housing a lot," Saegert said, "and they can end up becoming withdrawn, and have trouble studying and concentrating."
And modern amenities like floor to ceiling windows, extra storage and a roof deck aren't likely to help Saegert added. Children, she said, need privacy in their everyday life.
