New York Times On Living in 435 Square Feet
Michael Weschler for The New York Times
It is Thursday, and the New York Times Homes section takes usually takes us into million dollar designer digs; it is a nice change to see a modest 435 square foot home for three that cost far less. It doesn't look small, and according to the Times, actually appears spacious, airy and serene. A friend describes it: "To me, what's lovely about this space is that someone born in India and someone born in Holland, both with a design sense, have created a space that feels very Japanese, that reflects the Japanese ability to live in small spaces gracefully."
"Each space — for sleeping, cooking, eating, and socializing — is separate, and yet it flows together seamlessly in what anybody else would call a very small space." ::New York Times
