Graham Hill began experimenting with small space living in 2010 when he bought two units in a pre-war coop in New York City’s Soho. He ran a competition to redesign the first rundown flat, and the winners, Romanian architecture students Catalin Sandu and Andrei Butusina, created a moving wall and transformable furniture so the one room could function as three or four. He sold LifeEdited1, or LE1, a few years ago and began work on his second experiment in living with less, LE2, which he hoped would be more affordable and less of a white box. This time he and his team created sliding couch-cubes that can be pushed from room to room to add seating to a couch/dining room or to configure into a queen-sized bed. There’s also lots of felt to absorb sound (both on walls and as a dividing curtain). Ditching LE1’s movable wall - it didn’t block sound and was too expensive - the LifeEdited crew settled for an accordion door (it shrinks to one-tenth it’s expanded size and can fit into tiny closet in the wall). More often found in conference halls or schools, here the expando-wall divides the guest bedroom/office from the rest of the space. “When it's out it has the acoustic properties of a 2-by-4 insulated stud wall with drywall so it's very effective at sound insulation.” LE1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYV0qATsyts More info on LE2: http://lifeedited.com/lifeedited-2/ LE2 is for sale: https://www.corcoran.com/nyc-real-estate/for-sale/soho-nolita/150-sullivan-street-apt-33/5521991 Original story: https://faircompanies.com/videos/graham-hills-nyc-tiny-flat-2-attunes-l-space-to-the-moment/
All of the furniture and rooms in Leonardo Di Chiara’s tiny house fold, swing and pivot into the walls so when closed the space is absent of color, like a whiteboard perfect for the creative process of a young architect. Calling it aVOID in reference to the hollow shell it can morph into, Di Chiara says it’s more aspirational than a reflection of his not-yet-hyper-minimalist lifestyle, He wanted an uncluttered lifestyle but he also wanted to be mobile and to live in a big city. His solution, to build a row house on wheels. Di Chiara has currently wedged his row house between two tiny houses on the campus of the Bauhaus Archiv in Berlin where Van Bo Le-Mentzel, designer of the "one square meter" house, has organized a tiny living experiment. Di Chiara hopes to continue the experimenting when he moves to Milan. His idea is to create a prototype for a Migratory Neighborhood that could be replicated across Europe so urban nomads like himself could find temporary places to park their homes in schools (during the summer), parks (in winter), abandoned lots, etc. He sees it as a win win for cities eager to keep eyes on the street in isolated or temporarily unused parts of town. aVOID Tiny House on Tour - 8000 km from Berlin to Rome: http://www.leonardodichiara.it/avoidontour/ Leonardo’s tiny-living on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/leonardo.di.chiara/ Migratory Neighborhoods and other news (Leonardo is currently collecting information from those interested in joining him): https://www.facebook.com/avoidtinyhouse/ Leonardo's collaborators: DMM (metal covering and kitchen top), Makte (wood), Häfele (furniture hardware), iGuzzini (lights), Bosch (battery and home appliances), Omar (trailer), Giommi (windows making), Schüco (windows products), Gessi (taps and sink), BTicino (electric plugs), Noctis (mattress and pillows), Mottura (curtains), FG Arredamenti (carpenter for interior), Subissati (wooden structure), Faber (induction stove and kitchen hood), Legnotech (structure construction), ICA (bio paintings), Ambivalent (foldable chairs), G.R.

I saw this house a few years ago when it was for sale. This house had a bargain price, but it needed to be gutted and I still don't think it would be functional. Over 7,000 square feet, 1 acre, and a lot of craziness. It ended up selling for $266,000 and then again for $425,000 without being repaired. For those who watch my fix and flip videos, I did not buy this house! You can learn much more about how I have created over $12,000 a month in passive income with my rentals from my best-selling book: Build a Rental Property Empire. It is available as a paperback, audiobook, and eBook here. http://amzn.to/2BWvFgQ You can see my latest house flips on this playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLoQKPI7WPeHhEARu3mXCbVF2cZNHhw_F3 I flip from 15 to 30 houses a year and own multiple rental properties as well.

Christian's hotel inspired by LEGO flat: https://youtu.be/MvJfN9jTS5s
When Christian Schallert isn't cooking, dressing, sleeping or eating, his 24 square meter (258 square feet) apartment looks like an empty cube. To use a piece of furniture, he has to build it.
Located in Barcelona's hip Born district, the tiny apartment is a remodeled pigeon loft. Designed by architect Barbara Appolloni, Christian says the space was inspired by the space-saving furniture aboard boats, as well as the clean lines of a small Japanese home.
Christian sold his apartment and has reinvested his money and small space design ideas in opening a small hotel in Barcelona: www.hotelbrummell.com
