When architect Graham Hill was faced with the challenge of gut renovating then decorating a 350-square-foot apartment, he didn't groan or stress as many New Yorkers would—he jumped at the opportunity to get creative. The founder of LifeEdited, a website dedicated to small-space design, minimalism, and eco-friendly living, completely reimagined the SoHo micro-apartment and has just listed it for sale for $750,000.
A tour of the space reveals a glimpse at the home of the future. Despite its size, the multifunction apartment includes a guest room, home office, and a seated area for up to 10 people. Curtains act as movable partitions, a fold-out bed can be tucked away when not in use, and every kitchen, closet, and bathroom drawer is designed to maximize storage. Take a peek at Hill's master micro-apartment, a lesson in smart, serviceable small-space design.
