Piotr Redlinski for The New York Times
TreeHugger loves the idea of small spaces; the New York Times shows a particularly lovely apartment in Greenwich Village that packs a lot into just 350 square feet. They write:
As floor plans go, there isn't much: one medium-size room; a galley kitchen tucked behind a wall; a bathroom; and, in lieu of a bedroom, a sleeping loft up a ladder from the living area, under the sloping roof.
But what a difference design makes.
The apartment may be one room, but it is flooded with light and has high ceilings lined with exposed beams. The walls are painted a crisp white, creating what she [tenant Mary Biosic] aptly called a "light box" effect.
Really, if you are single and in New York City, how much space do you really need? They should put these on every rooftop.
