Alexander Gorlin Architects is a New York-based studio that's behind a modern apartment complex that's designed to house single low-income tenants in the Bronx area.

The interior of the building is spacious yet simplistic, with the studio ensuring that the space is opened up with natural light and an open-concept design. The apartment complex also offers plenty of communal space to facilitate a more positive sense of community. The exterior is made bright with multi-colored panels that contrast the gray brick. A total of 154 apartments are in the building, with each intended to house "single working adults who earn between $18,000 and $35,280 per year."

In addition to offering affordable housing to low-income tenants, the "project specifically targets formerly homeless individuals who are high-cost recipients of Medicaid assistance -- a government social healthcare program that is available to impoverished US residents."
