Living Large in Tiny Spaces: Art Deco Edition

Photos via The Icon

Built by the Pew family in 1929, The Icon, housed at 1616 Walnut Street remains one of Philadelphia's finest examples of Art Deco design. The lobby is full of original historic details (the front window, light fixtures, elevator caps, and aluminum elements are all original), and the apartments offer contemporary amenities and design features, while still paying homage to the building's art deco style.

And since it's Micro Week here at Curbed, we found the tiniest of the units offered at The Icon - all around 500 square-feet small, so you could envision yourself living the Micro life in one of Philly's most amenity-packed buildings, if even that means keeping your dining room table in your parent's basement.

In case you forgot, some of the ultra-luxurious amenities found at The Icon include: a private dining room with a fireplace (we told you that you didn't need your dining room table), a wellness floor, charging stations for electric cars, cold storage for grocery delivery, a personal trainer available to all residents, pet grooming, an herb garden, an outdoor living area, a sky deck, and some units even feature vitamin c infused showers and energizing lights.
