This tiny flat in the heart of Soho, New York, was transformed from a run-down old space into a modern luxury three bed apartment to showcase smaller living.
Graham Hill, founder of treehugger,com, spent two years converting two tiny 100-year-old apartments as a prototype to promote smaller living spaces.
At only 420ft, the first apartment now includes three beds, dining table for 10, an office, storage space, kitchen, as well as laundry and a place to hook up your bike.
During research, Mr Hill spent most of 2009 living in small spaces, first a trailer, then a tent and finally a boat and was convinced that others would also love tiny living just as much if it was designed right.
“It was expensive, but it’s a prototype,” said Mr Hill. “We are trying a lot of new things so it was definitely expensive. We believe we can do this at scale at reasonable cost.”
