Graham Hill's NYC tiny flat #2 attunes L space to the moment

Graham Hill began experimenting with small space living in 2010 when he bought two units in a pre-war coop in New York City’s Soho. He ran a competition to redesign the first rundown flat, and the winners, Romanian architecture students Catalin Sandu and Andrei Butusina, created a moving wall and transformable furniture so the one room could function as three or four. He sold LifeEdited1, or LE1, a few years ago and began work on his second experiment in living with less, LE2, which he hoped would be more affordable and less of a white box. This time he and his...

Pivoting wall adds/subtracts rooms in NYC modular micro-flat

When architect Robert Garneau was asked to turn a Manhattan prewar studio into an apartment that would sleep 6 and seat 10 guests for Thanksgiving, he removed existing walls to create one large space, but added a hidden pivoting wall that swings out to recreate rooms when needed. When the wall is rotated out, the one large space is divided into living room and bedroom and a Murphy bed is revealed behind the wall. Once the wall bed is pulled down the very back of the wall is revealed with recessed lighting, a charging station and a long bedside table. Two hanging...

How would a Swiss Army knife look if it were a tiny house

All of the furniture and rooms in Leonardo Di Chiara’s tiny house fold, swing and pivot into the walls so when closed the space is absent of color, like a whiteboard perfect for the creative process of a young architect. Calling it aVOID in reference to the hollow shell it can morph into, Di Chiara says it’s more aspirational than a reflection of his not-yet-hyper-minimalist lifestyle, He wanted an uncluttered lifestyle but he also wanted to be mobile and to live in a big city. His solution, to build a row house on wheels. Di Chiara has currently wedged his row...

Designing to last: multi-purpose furniture adapts to use/age

“Real estate in cities has gotten so expensive that anybody who has a bit of a high ceiling is trying to use that height of the room,” explains designer Roberto Gil who creates custom furniture for his Casa Kids line out of a Brooklyn warehouse (Casa Kids: www.casakids.com) Gil studied architecture, but in 1992 began designing children’s chairs and soon launched into specialized loft and bunk beds, desks, storage units and custom rooms. His more recent prefab creation is the Urbano: an all-in-one unit for adults with a king-sized bed above a full office and murphy bed for overnight guests, plus...

325-square-foot "cave" apartment with DIY & upcycled furniture

Monica Potvin and Markel Otaola bought the 30-square-meter (323-square-foot usable space) apartment in Barcelona's Gothic Quarter during their child-free years when location was more important than space. The tiny quarters had once been a space for the doorlady and it was half under-ground. After a makeover that included a lot of custom, DIY furniture, Potvin dubbed the home the "cozy cave". The couple lived here while Potvin was pregnant* and have even hosted dinner parties in this reduced volume. Thanks to some dual-purpose furniture, the place now sleeps four. In addition to the queen bed in the bedroom, there's a couch bed...

Idaho modern oldtimer builds underground & solar $50 houses

Mike Oehler lived for over 30 years in an underground home that he built for $50 (and expanded for $500) on his land in Northern Idaho near the Canadian border. Now in his seventies his arthritis keeps him from hiking up to his home, but he continues to “write and proselytize” In 1968 like thousands of other San Franciscans hoping to go “back to the land”, Oehler bought property and began to build a homestead. After spending a winter freezing in a small cabin, he designed a home that would use the earth as insulation. With his first attempt he fell...

Furniture meets robotics: superpower to show/hide what's used

Robotics-engineer-turned-entrepreneur Hasier Larrea wants to give furniture superpowers. In response to rising rents and populations in global cities, he has created a tool to make small spaces work harder with robotics. http://orisystems.com As head of Architectural Robotics research at the MIT Media Lab, Larrea spent 4 years developing strategies for “living large in a small space”: his team created an “army of furniture with superpowers” and built a 200 square-foot living laboratory focused on using mechatronics (electronics plus mechanical engineering). Now, his company Ori- Japanese for “to fold”- has created robotic furniture that transforms into a bedroom, living room or an office...

Everyone was laughing at his HOUSE, until they went inside...

TINIEST HOMES OF ALL TIME and very comfortable for living! One of the slogans of the Swedish company IKEA urges to think boldly. However, it would rather seem that they are far from bold thinking when all their proposals for interior design are limited to the principles of comfort and practicality. The heroes of our next video are not afraid to make bold decisions – They build houses on the water or even take them on the road with them. With that said, check out our top 8 smallest and the most comfortable houses. GREDIT: 1. Tokidoki Traveller https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAKZ2vtm_-hfqeCGTNNbZqA 2.

Tall law student, tiny house: bachelor builds dorm on wheels

When Joel Fleck moved home after college, he wanted his own place, but he didn’t want to pay the steep Sonoma County rents, so he decided to build his own tiny home on a trailer. Inspired by wee house pioneer Jay Shafer (also from Sebastopol), Fleck bought an abandoned trailer from a neighbor for $300 and began building without plans. To make up for his lack of construction experience he “over-engineered” the build, though the entire build cost him just $25,000. He found a lot of salvaged material and this didn’t include the cost of his labor of two years. Many...

Fluid NYC flat uses sliding furniture to create 3 rooms in 1

Russian architect Peter Kostelov and his artist wife, Olga Feshina, wanted private rooms to work from home in their aging New York City apartment so they tore down the interior walls and rebuilt the 700-square-foot space with not just a living room, kitchen, bathroom and master bedroom, but two flex spaces which serve for work and guests (via slide-out beds). With the help of Kostelov’s carpenter father Vladimir (who flew in from Russia to help) they used plywood to craft sliding tables, benches and beds, as well as cabinets, closets and some walls and ceiling finishes. “This is the biggest...

Tiny matchbox apartment hides closet & bathtub in drawers

Micro-apartments are common in historically dense cities like Paris and Barcelona, but architect Valentina Maini wasn't interested in typical small space solutions like lofted sleeping quarters or murphy beds. She wanted her 25 square meter home (269 square feet) to look a bit more conventional, but to stack functions. She hired a carpenter to create a dining table that slides over a matching bench to create more room for guests (she's had 20 over for wine and cheese). She didn't stop there. The bench also slides to reveal a full-sized bathtub: her micro-spa. Valentina filled her need for leg-less chairs using...

Old silo now spaceship-esque tiny home in Berlin

After two years of living in a camper with his young daughter, architect Jan Körbes wanted something better suited to their active lifestyle, so he decided to realize a longtime dream of turning a grain silo into a microhome. With the help of his team at REFUNC, specialists in creative recycling, they bought an old grain bin from a farmer and set to work making it habitable. Working with a footprint of 4m2 (43 square feet), the group started by adding floors to the space. The final home is 3 stories and includes a climbing wall as sole means of reaching...

NYC "Swiss Army knife" apartment's walls open, fold & slide

Rosa and Robert Garneau's Chelsea apartment is small- just 550 square feet of usable space with a bedroom just 8 feet wide-, but they can both work from home, find privacy (even for meetings while the other is sleeping) and fit all their belongings (sports equipment and lots of office gear) thanks to walls that don't stand still. Nearly every "wall" in the Garneau's Transformer Loft opens to reveal cabinets, a bed or even a home office. And all of it was carefully designed for utility and precision. The hydraulics on their Murphy bed are so perfectly balanced that it opens...

Mortgage-free, tiny home on a housekeeper's salary

Johnny Sanphillippo has never made more than $20,000 per year (he works as a housekeeper, as well as, a gardener and house painter), but he knew like "any other American" that he wanted to own his own home. When he talked to bankers about qualifying for a home loan, "they look at you and their eyes glaze over and you realize, they're going to give me a lollipop and send me home, which is pretty much what happened". So he decided that if he went far enough away from his hometown of San Francisco he could find something he could afford...

Tiny Studio Apartment | With Wall Bed and Green Garden (250 sq.ft.)

We stayed in this cute little apartment during our stay in The Netherlands in April, and we really liked it. It has everything you need including a small private green garden and a cute wall bed, that folds down nicely above the sofa table. For the same reason the sofa table has wheels, and is made very low to fit under the homemade wall bed. The bathroom has a rain shower, a very nice touch for a tiny space. The area around the toilet is very well designed with space for towels and other stuff. The door that leads from the...

Virgil unbound: Italian Alps ruin becomes dream budget home

When his wife inherited a ruined stable in Italy’s Orobic Alps, architect Alfredo Vanotti reinvisioned the space as a family home, reflecting local craftsmanship and his love of modern design. To daylight the home, Vanotti created a long skylight and four large windows facing the Valtellina Valley below. To create exterior walls that resembled the “dry stone” technique of the the region’s traditional homes, he used local stone and a minimal amount of cement to hold it together. For the interior, Vanotti used reinforced concrete, along with natural larch and iron to give the home a more modern feel. “Concrete is misused,”...
