Why Is This Fort Greene Residence All Lit Up?

By Patty Lee, Sun, June 22, 2014

516 State Street (Spectrum House) designed by Taylor and Miller Architecture and Design

As New Yorkers, we have long come to terms with living in small spaces — we cram into tiny studios, fashion herb gardens on fire escapes and even wrap our apartments with shelves for storage space. But we’re also a stylish bunch, always looking for ways to make our homes stand out.

So when the owners of this Brooklyn residence wanted to tie in their many rooms without losing any space, the partners at Taylor and Miller Architecture and Design came up with a creative plan.

67 East 11th Street 307

Most New Yorkers are used to squeezing into small quarters, but few of those spaces boast dramatic ceilings like this beautiful little home at 67 East 11th Street in Greenwich Village. Measuring approximately 950-square-feet, this duplex loft is perfect for a single or for a no fuss no muss couple that wants to live minimally. And unlike the other tiny spaces of Manhattan, this loft is a light-filled abode with 10-foot tall windows and southern exposures that ensure every day will be a sunny one in the village.

Cricket Folding Table from Folditure

City dwellers are no strangers to folding furniture — they’re true lifesavers when living in tiny, cramped apartments. But while most are functional, few are as beautiful as the fold-up tables and chairs designed by architect Alexander Gendell. His Folditure line (get it?) is not only ingeniously-designed, but each piece — like the Cricket Folding Table — resembles a work of origami art.

Carroll Dunham apt living room

Carroll Dunham and Laurie Simmons, the parents of prodigious millennial Lena Dunham, have sold their Tribeca loft at 16 Desbrosses St, #4S for $6.25 million. The 3,600-square-foot location for the award winning film, Tiny Furniture, was once a textile warehouse. In recent years, the bright, airy space, perfectly suited for artistic inspiration, was re-designed by architect David Bers who was also responsible for designing the couple’s other residence in Cornwall, CT. They also collaborated with interior designer Nick Dine, son of pop artist Jim Dine, and the result was an open, spacious live/work design prepared to accommodate any sudden bursts of inspiration.

Back in 2009, Graham Hill purchased two apartments at 150 Sullivan Street with the express purpose of showing that people could have everything they need using less stuff and space. Rather than hiring an architect, the eco-entrepreneur, TED-Talk alum, and founder of Treehugger.com, decided to kickstart a competition to find his unique one-size-fits-all design. What turned up was an innovative transforming apartment filled with brilliant space-efficient features like sliding walls, hidden storage, and multi-tasking furniture. Though Hill’s ‘Life Edited‘ apartment measures an ultra tiny 420-square-feet, the elegant, high-tech space still manages to pack in all the amenities of a home of more than twice its size.

How many people can you pack into 420 sq ft?
