The Architect Is In: A Tiny Live/Work Loft Made Large

I have mentioned several times how I am intrigued with well designed spaces. I prefer smaller ones. If done well you do not get the feeling of being closed in at all. Below is a series of photographs of a loft that is 650 sq feet.  My last apartment was 550 and did not feel at all like this space.  I did not have the storage nor the flexibility in room configuration. Glad I did not see this while I was in the apartment or I might have cried.

The Architect Is In: A Tiny Live/Work Loft Made Large

Is it possible for a couple to live and work together harmoniously in 650 square feet? This week Robert Garneau of Studio Garneau (the firm is a member of the Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory) takes us through intelligent urban living in his design of a small apartment in New York’s neighborhood of Chelsea. For the next 48 hours, Garneau is available to answer your queries; leave your questions in the comments section below.

Whatever the budget, every urbanite grapples with not having enough space. With a few sleights of hand and some hard-working hardware, Garneau plays magician, seeming to pull living and storage space out of nowhere effortlessly, transforming a 650-square-foot studio into a one-bedroom live/work apartment for a couple who run their office from home. Beware—when you’re not looking, he may just transform it back again.
