• This Tiny "Space Saving" NYC Apartment Is Available for $1M
  • Posted 9 months ago by Jack Lowe · Art & Design · 9198 Views
  • Back in 2010, Graham Hill decided to ditch all of his meaningless possessions and worked with Romanian design students Catalin Sandu and Adrian Iancu to design an apartment in NYC which managed to fit eight rooms into a tiny 420 square-foot space. Now, that apartment is on the the market… for just under $1m USD. In the apartment tour above, which was created by Gizmodo, Hill shows us all the clever features of the space, including vanishing walls, hidden storage, and modular furniture.

    Hill now plans to take this "micro-living" concept global, creating similar apartments in other cities and convincing people that living with less can actually make your life simpler, and this happier. What do you think - could you live in a space like this, and would you be willing to pay up to $1m USD (approx. 605,000) for it?

    • omg this apartment is amazing!

    • I would calculate the value as follows: the cost of a similar 440 square foot condo plus $50,000 -$60,000 for upgrades.

    • Plastered over the speakers? Must sound great! Throw the Marantz out the window. Otherwise all very nice.

    • Very impressive but the effort to enjoy a lifestyle like that would be too tiring.
