MKCA’s Attic Transformer: Amazing 225 sq. ft. Apartment

This the Attic Transformer, an amazing 225 st. ft. apartment created from an attic space in West Village, New York City, and wow is it cool.


MKCA, or Michael C Chen Architecture designed this multi-functional space that fits everything you need into a very tiny apartment. The main wall can be completely closed up, or you can pull your desk, computer, dining room table, closet, pantry and BED out from the wall when needed. There’s also a compact kitchenette, a comfortable stationary sofa, and a luxury bathroom.

Enjoy the pictures and get more information on the last page!

No dining table, everything “folded” away.

Again, folded away. Just the living room.

    West Village? 1840’s Townhouse? All this (all 225 sq ft) can be yours for only $1.2mil !! LOL I lived at 1st and 41st down by the UN in early 60’s and my rent for a 1 bed pre-war was $125, but then I think I made around 10k a year:) LOL I have two friends who share a studio Mid town for $3800 a mo. How did rents get so out of whack?
