As you know, having to live in a small space is not exactly a dream come true. Almost anyone would rather choose a home that’s bigger than they need instead of a tiny one where there’s no space for anything. But this doesn’t mean that small apartments should be banished or that they should disappear. It only means that we need to find ways to deal with them. Every once in a while we find tiny apartments that are very inspiring. Here’s one of them.
This is a micro-loft located in Manhattan, New York. It was designed by Specht Harpman and it’s full of surprises. The interior has been beautifully modeled and custom-designed and it has a clean, simple and modern look. Since the biggest problem in such spaces is the lack of storage, the designers came up with all sorts of innovative solutions for that. You can find all sorts of clever storage options that make this tiny penthouse duplex feel very comfortable and inviting.
Turning this space into a comfortable and livable space was definitely a challenge. The designers only had 424 square feet to work with. They divided the space in 3 levels. They also tried to open it up as much as possible and to make it feel both beautiful and welcoming. The upper level was extended and it features a built-in bed that cantilevers over the floor edge. It was an ingenious idea that freed up floor space. to solve the storage problem, lots of built-in drawers, spaces under the stairs and other hidden solutions were found.
