в†‘ At 450-square-feet , this studio on West 73rd Street isn't all that micro, but thanks to its innovative, bright blue, origami-like system that hides the furniture, it garnered quite a bit of attention. Architects Michael Chen and Kari Anderson of Normal Projects created the folding contraption, which holds the bed, table, closet, and storage. The owner listed it for $469,000 in May 2014, and it sold a few months later for $1,000 more than the asking price.
в†‘ When Huxley Somerville bought his 425-square-foot Upper West Side apartment for just $95,000 in 1994, it was in horrible shape. But a complete gut renovation opened up the duplex and made it impressively spacious, with stairs that double as storage, a coffee table that rises to full height, and a lofted sleeping space.
в†‘ Graham Hill, founder of TreeHugger and LifeEdited, hosted a design competition to outfit his 420-square-foot studio, and the result is this multi-tasking space that can accommodate a 12-person dinner party, two overnight guests, a home theater, an office, and more. He listed the Soho apartment for $995,000 in March 2014, and it sold in November for $790,000.
в†‘ Open House New York brought dozens of people through this 375-square-foot former dentist's office designed by Reddymade Design. Everything can be put away and out of sight; even the dining table, which can be lifted up to the ceiling.
