40 square meter Manhattan Micro-Loft
« on: June 19, 2014, 12:47:25 AM »


New York-based firm Specht Harpman Architects has turned a tiny 425-square-feet Manhattan micro loft apartment into a stylish, spacious home.













A small bathroom is located on the bottom floor under a staircase, which has multiple storage compartments built into it. The kitchen opens up into the living room, with white cabinets and countertops maintaining a bright and airy feel. The simple design prevents the area from looking untidy and cluttered, creating the illusion of more space.

The first flight of stairs takes you to the bedroom, which is supported on steel beams and seems to float above the living room below. The bed frame comes with a night stand and a cabinet behind the bed stores magazines and books. More storage compartments are hidden under a second set of stairs which leads to the rooftop garden.

Every inch of space has been creatively utilized to make the most of the limited area, with each “room” dissolving into the next to create a seamless flow. The lack of walls and doors ensures the apartment doesn’t feel cramped, while the built-in features mean only a few pieces of furniture like a couch, coffee table, bed and side chair are needed.

What do you think of the design? Would you like to live in such an apartment?
