Very Brief History of LifeEdited

With a recent piece in the NY Times, we thought it would be useful for those new–and not so new–to LifeEdited to create a short timeline with a few key bits of historical information:

2009

Treehugger.com founder Graham Hill bought 2 tiny apartments (420 and 350 sq ft) in the Soho neighborhood of New York City for the express purpose of making them into the smartest, most efficient, elegant small spaces possible, creating a new type of small, awesome home.

2010

With the help of crowd-sourcing platform Jovoto and marketing firm Mutopo, Graham launched a competition to find the world’s best small-space design. Read more about it here.

2011

Romanian architecture students Catalin Sandu and Adrian Iancu win competition with their “One Size Fits All” design.

Graham Hill speaks about the project at the TED conference (1.3M view to date). Rated one of top ideas of 2011 at TED by Huffington Post.

Construction of the apartment begins in October with Brooklyn-based architecture firm Guerin Glass.

2012

Website launches to show the best in “edited” architecture, design and living.

Graham Hill’s apartment completed in May and featured in NY Times, who dubbed it the “Apartment of the Future.”
