This small NYC apartment magically transforms 420 square feet into 1100 square feet of usable space with the use of multifunctional furniture.
He bought the apartment back in 2010, as you’ll see in the video below, and has since renovated it. The video was shot and produced by our friends Kirsten Dirksen and Nicolas Boullosa at Faircompanies.com. The project took about 3 years to complete.
The small NYC apartment can become a huge master bedroom or a giant open office with windows thanks to the built in furniture that transforms the space and hides all of your stuff.
Below is a photo of the apartment before the renovations.

Small NYC Apartment That Hosts 10 or More Guests
If you’re having people over there’s an entire wall that you pull out to reveal a second bedroom with even more storage including a spot to store a bicycle and pull out bunk beds for guests. The multifunctional furniture is thanks to Resource Furniture which we did a post on a while back.
What I love most about this space is that you can live small without sacrificing the ability to comfortably have people over. You wouldn’t even have to drastically reduce the amount of stuff you have in comparison to a tiny house. There’s even the ability to pull out a dinner table that seats ten people.
The bathroom doubles as a phone booth just by flipping down a piece of furniture over the toilet. This way if guests are over, you or any of your guests can walk in there for some privacy in case of a phone call or whatever. Graham and his team seemed to have thought of everything.
He’ll even show you his unique wardrobe made out of merino wool which can be worn more times without smelling since it’s antibacterial. Graham’s kitchenware is also super space efficient, as you’ll see. He’s experimenting with utensils, plates, appliances, and kitchenware.
Seamless Kitchen in Small NYC Apartment
The apartment’s kitchen has a top load dishwasher, plug-in 3 burner stoves, slide out recycle and garbage bins, freezer, refrigerator, composter, and a two in one microwave/convection oven. And everything is seamless because even most of the appliances look like drawers.
When you walk in to the small NYC apartment there’s plenty of space for coats in a closet plus cubbies for you and your guests shoes. Outside Graham has even managed to install some solar panels to power some of his LED lights and his cell phone charger. I almost forgot to mention, there’s a large projection screen that pulls out for watching movies on a big screen.
