Tiny 500-Square-Foot Apartment Is as Fashionable as Its Chelsea Address

Though we tend to focus on larger than life luxury apartments, we’ve certainly come to love the creative tenacity that comes with living small. Our latest gem comes from Foz Design, led by Fauzia Khanani, who worked to renovate this 500-square-foot pied-à-terre for a Dutch composer and Manhattanite journalist. Located in a pre-war, landmarked building in the heart of Chelsea, Foz managed to create a glamorous modern home with plenty of old world charm.

The home’s walls were clad in brick wallpaper (yes, we couldn’t believe it ourselves!) designed by Tom Haga, which adds depth and character to the main room. A bar-like island with a rustic metal counter was chosen for its use as both an area for food preparation and dining. The design not only maximizes space but also neatly ties the living and kitchen areas together.

The interior renovation also included new lighting, flooring, wall treatments, refurbishing existing built-in cabinetry, plumbing fixtures, and the selection of various furnishings.

One of the requirements of the redesigned apartment was to have dedicated work areas for each of them—one of which is in the bedroom, furnished with a modern, transforming bed-desk system while the second is an unobtrusive wall-mounted desk in the living area. And although the space is small, the couple frequently host friends, and even enjoy three-sided city views.
