Gorgeous NYC Apt Shows What Can Be Done with 650 sq ft
Perhaps Studio Garneau‘s 650 sq ft “Transformer” apartment is a bit out of most of our pay grade. It cost $360/sq ft for the gut renovation–that’s $234K without the cost of the apartment (this figure is–strange as it might sound to a non-New Yorker–not so outrageous). But the end-product is pretty amazing and shows what’s possible when a pretty modest-sized apartment is filled with great design.
The interior is decked out with the Studio’s “Multi” product line–various pieces of furniture that transform, are easily moved and contains interior storage. Robert Garneau told Remodelista that the line is available in various materials and finishes. No mention of price, but we suspect if you have to ask….
The bedroom features a Murphy bed that when tucked away expands living space.
A sliding wall creates privacy between bedroom and living room.
There are a ton of smart flourishes like this clothes rack that drops down, allowing use of high spaces.
The kitchen table is particularly ingenious. It has hydraulic legs that allow it to be set at 3 heights: kitchen island, dining table and work surface.
Much of the Multi furniture has built in storage.
The sliding wall is also a projection screen.
What we think is the best part of this space is its lack of fussiness. It looks like someplace you’d want to–and could–live in. While not a “micro-unit” per se, 650 sq ft split between 2 people living and working at home is pretty efficient.
