Remember that high tech convertible small apartment in Hong Kong? All of the rooms would transform making all of the space multifunctional.
Here’s a 450 square foot Manhattan apartment that has been uniquely redesigned by architect Michael Chen and assistant Kari Anderson.
This one is not as crazy as the Hong Kong one, but probably way more practical.
The teacher/resident Eric Schneider wanted the place to serve as a home where he can cook, store his stuff, sleep, entertain, and work.
What did they do? They knocked down most of the walls and recreated the place with transformer cabinets.
UPDATE: You can now watch a video tour and interview below.
Floor Plans (yes, plans — since it transforms!):
