We Can't Believe This Stunning Chicago Home Is Only 1000 Square Feet

What do you do when your new one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment is only 1000 square feet? It seems like a daunting task, but for Josh Young, the Chicago-based artist and founder of Josh Yöung Design House, this is what appealed to him most about the 1929 pre-war apartment.

Located in the heart of downtown Chicago’s historic Gold Coast neighborhood, this classic apartment had all the elegance and charm you could imagine from the era complete with original frame moldings, 10-foot-ceilings, original doors, fixtures and panoramic views of downtown Chicago and Lake Michigan. So the size seemed minuscule compared to its architectural beauty and location.
