This is an artist’s 753 sq. ft. workshop w/ a 300 sq. ft. tiny apartment within which makes it perfect for a live/work situation. How would you like to live with your own workspace and tiny home within the same structure? Do you think that would be useful for you?
The building was built in 2008 and I bought it in the pre build period. The loft was originally just a mezzanine space of which I’ve added hardwood floors, a kitchen, cabinetry, storage closets and a sleeping loft. Yes a loft in the loft. Loft squared.
This YO! Home gives you some of the functionality of a larger home inside of a studio space by using multifunctional furniture and designs, like how the bed that hides into your ceiling and how the dining room hides into your floor.
It even features a desk that converts into an extra bed, a kitchen that hides away when you’re not using it, and built-in floor storage. If you ever want to find yourself in a city, is a design like this something you would consider?
YO! Home Transforming/Multi-functional Studio Apartment
In a collaboration between The Tiny House Company (design), Georgia Ritchie (design) and Greg Thornton Constructions (construction), this tiny inner-city apartment was renovated to sleep 5 and accommodate short-stay guests.1
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.

The Portuguese architecture firm, led by Sérgio Nobre, designed this small space (about 616 sq. ft.) from an outdated existing apartment that’s long and thin. Although currently unfurnished, the interior features bright white walls, fun corners and zig-zagged walls, and a ton of open space. They provided the floor plan so you can get a feel for the house as a whole.
Do you like white walls? How about modern spaces? Read more about what they did to the space on the last page.
You might have noticed that mall-shopping is becoming more and more outdated. Many giant malls that used to attract millions of adults (and teenagers) are being abandoned, but the oldest US mall has been renovated and transformed!
The Arcade in Providence, Rhode Island is now home to tons of “microlofts” between 250 and 800 sq. ft. There was so much interest in the apartments, there’s now a long waiting list, and there aren’t even model apartments open for show! When they first opened, apartments started at just $550/month, but the website no longer quotes that price.
Way to reuse and recycle, though, rather than tearing down a historical landmark! Do you think we’ll see more of this in the future?
