Living in a place like NYC forces you to make the most of the space you have. That’s why the city is filled with so many fascinating small spaces, like this one.
Micro Apartment in NYC
How much can you fit into 240 square feet? This apartment/studio will give you a great idea of what might be possible in just about any small living space.
This masterfully designed space was designed and created by Brooklyn architect Tim Seggerman with inspiration from furniture designer George Nakashima.
The entire apartment is a master class in finish carpentry: There are cabinets of cypress and bamboo; a gently chamfered ash-and-beech staircase; flooring of quartered white oak; a desk of red birch slats that slips out into the living space. The lighting in the loft, much of it recessed behind panels of papyrus, lends the space a subtlety that doubles the sense of warmth. “It’s basically a piece of woodwork,” says Seggerman. “I’m very proud of that.” (Source)

The designer even made room for a micro library in the bedroom. There’s a better view below:
To the right of that you just slide some doors over and you’ve got your laundry room area. Genius!

Great view of the kitchen below. Notice the staircase to the loft on the right.
I find the design very clean.
