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

Graham Hill's NYC tiny flat #2 attunes L space to the moment

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...

How would a Swiss Army knife look if it were a tiny house

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...

Pivoting wall adds/subtracts rooms in NYC modular micro-flat

When architect Robert Garneau was asked to turn a Manhattan prewar studio into an apartment that would sleep 6 and seat 10 guests for Thanksgiving, he removed existing walls to create one large space, but added a hidden pivoting wall that swings out to recreate rooms when needed. When the wall is rotated out, the one large space is divided into living room and bedroom and a Murphy bed is revealed behind the wall. Once the wall bed is pulled down the very back of the wall is revealed with recessed lighting, a charging station and a long bedside table. Two hanging...

The Restoration of Ave Maria Narrated Version

Follow along as Julian Baumgartner of Baumgartner Fine Art Restoration in Chicago works to conserve and restore this icon of Ave Maria. This piece was likely created in a workshop that specialized in religious icons for churches and was the product of several craftspeople and artists with no one claiming ownership or signing the work. These icons appeared commonly throughout Europe and were often lost during war or the closure or relocation of a church. This piece came in with very little provenance other than that the original owner was an antiques dealer who traveled extensively throughout...

Designing to last: multi-purpose furniture adapts to use/age

“Real estate in cities has gotten so expensive that anybody who has a bit of a high ceiling is trying to use that height of the room,” explains designer Roberto Gil who creates custom furniture for his Casa Kids line out of a Brooklyn warehouse (Casa Kids: www.casakids.com) Gil studied architecture, but in 1992 began designing children’s chairs and soon launched into specialized loft and bunk beds, desks, storage units and custom rooms. His more recent prefab creation is the Urbano: an all-in-one unit for adults with a king-sized bed above a full office and murphy bed for overnight guests, plus...

Nebraska retiree uses earths's heat to grow oranges in snow

Winter temperatures in Alliance, Nebraska can drop to -20°F (the record low is -40°F/C), but retired mailman Russ Finch grows oranges in his backyard greenhouse without paying for heat. Instead, he draws on the earth's stable temperature (around 52 degrees in his region) to grow warm weather produce- citrus, figs, pomegranates - in the snow. Finch first discovered geothermal heating in 1979 when he and his wife built it into their 4400-square-foot dream home to cut energy costs. Eighteen years later they decided to add a 16'x80' greenhouse in the backyard. The greenhouse resembles a pit greenhouse (walipini) in that the...

Everyone was laughing at his HOUSE, until they went inside...

TINIEST HOMES OF ALL TIME and very comfortable for living! One of the slogans of the Swedish company IKEA urges to think boldly. However, it would rather seem that they are far from bold thinking when all their proposals for interior design are limited to the principles of comfort and practicality. The heroes of our next video are not afraid to make bold decisions – They build houses on the water or even take them on the road with them. With that said, check out our top 8 smallest and the most comfortable houses. GREDIT: 1. Tokidoki Traveller https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAKZ2vtm_-hfqeCGTNNbZqA 2.

Idaho modern oldtimer builds underground & solar $50 houses

Mike Oehler lived for over 30 years in an underground home that he built for $50 (and expanded for $500) on his land in Northern Idaho near the Canadian border. Now in his seventies his arthritis keeps him from hiking up to his home, but he continues to “write and proselytize” In 1968 like thousands of other San Franciscans hoping to go “back to the land”, Oehler bought property and began to build a homestead. After spending a winter freezing in a small cabin, he designed a home that would use the earth as insulation. With his first attempt he fell...

Fluid NYC flat uses sliding furniture to create 3 rooms in 1

Russian architect Peter Kostelov and his artist wife, Olga Feshina, wanted private rooms to work from home in their aging New York City apartment so they tore down the interior walls and rebuilt the 700-square-foot space with not just a living room, kitchen, bathroom and master bedroom, but two flex spaces which serve for work and guests (via slide-out beds). With the help of Kostelov’s carpenter father Vladimir (who flew in from Russia to help) they used plywood to craft sliding tables, benches and beds, as well as cabinets, closets and some walls and ceiling finishes. “This is the biggest...

Furniture meets robotics: superpower to show/hide what's used

Robotics-engineer-turned-entrepreneur Hasier Larrea wants to give furniture superpowers. In response to rising rents and populations in global cities, he has created a tool to make small spaces work harder with robotics. http://orisystems.com As head of Architectural Robotics research at the MIT Media Lab, Larrea spent 4 years developing strategies for “living large in a small space”: his team created an “army of furniture with superpowers” and built a 200 square-foot living laboratory focused on using mechatronics (electronics plus mechanical engineering). Now, his company Ori- Japanese for “to fold”- has created robotic furniture that transforms into a bedroom, living room or an office...

Tall law student, tiny house: bachelor builds dorm on wheels

When Joel Fleck moved home after college, he wanted his own place, but he didn’t want to pay the steep Sonoma County rents, so he decided to build his own tiny home on a trailer. Inspired by wee house pioneer Jay Shafer (also from Sebastopol), Fleck bought an abandoned trailer from a neighbor for $300 and began building without plans. To make up for his lack of construction experience he “over-engineered” the build, though the entire build cost him just $25,000. He found a lot of salvaged material and this didn’t include the cost of his labor of two years. Many...

Tiny Origami apartment in Manhattan unfolds into 4 rooms

In 2005, third-grade-teacher Eric Schneider bought as big as an apartment as he could afford in Manhattan. He paid $235,000 for a 450-square-foot studio with a tiny kitchen. Then he let architects Michael Chen and Kari Anderson of Normal Projects design a way to pack more density into his small space. In order to fit more apartment in a small footprint, they created an object that's bigger than furniture, but smaller than architecture and that morphs with the changing activities of a day. It's a large, blue, oversized cabinet that houses all of the walls/bed/tables/shelving/closets needed for at least 4 full-sized rooms. By continuing...

Old silo now spaceship-esque tiny home in Berlin

After two years of living in a camper with his young daughter, architect Jan Körbes wanted something better suited to their active lifestyle, so he decided to realize a longtime dream of turning a grain silo into a microhome. With the help of his team at REFUNC, specialists in creative recycling, they bought an old grain bin from a farmer and set to work making it habitable. Working with a footprint of 4m2 (43 square feet), the group started by adding floors to the space. The final home is 3 stories and includes a climbing wall as sole means of reaching...

San Francisco brick boiler room turned industrial tiny house

Architect Christi Azevedo transformed a tiny boiler room in her San Francisco backyard into a compact home crafted like custom furniture. Trained in metalworking and furniture building, everything is tailored to create a home that feels much larger than its 88 square feet (8 feet wide by 11 feet deep).

Tiny matchbox apartment hides closet & bathtub in drawers

Micro-apartments are common in historically dense cities like Paris and Barcelona, but architect Valentina Maini wasn't interested in typical small space solutions like lofted sleeping quarters or murphy beds. She wanted her 25 square meter home (269 square feet) to look a bit more conventional, but to stack functions. She hired a carpenter to create a dining table that slides over a matching bench to create more room for guests (she's had 20 over for wine and cheese). She didn't stop there. The bench also slides to reveal a full-sized bathtub: her micro-spa. Valentina filled her need for leg-less chairs using...

Colorado portable tiny house + Airstream-ish portable office

Ann Holley wanted to create an off-grid, transportable tiny house that would be technically an RV, but with an aesthetic that wouldn't feel like living in an RV. What she created with her partner Darren Macca is a 125-square-foot "stick built" home with a cedar exterior and a refreshing and expanding all-white interior. The ProtoHaus has proven to be a truly portable home, making several cross country journeys. The couple originally built the home during a summer on her parents' property in Colorado. They then drove it 1,500 miles to Alfred, New York where they lived in it for a year...

NYC "Swiss Army knife" apartment's walls open, fold & slide

Rosa and Robert Garneau's Chelsea apartment is small- just 550 square feet of usable space with a bedroom just 8 feet wide-, but they can both work from home, find privacy (even for meetings while the other is sleeping) and fit all their belongings (sports equipment and lots of office gear) thanks to walls that don't stand still. Nearly every "wall" in the Garneau's Transformer Loft opens to reveal cabinets, a bed or even a home office. And all of it was carefully designed for utility and precision. The hydraulics on their Murphy bed are so perfectly balanced that it opens...

Vipp Shelter tiny prefab as precise industrial-era appliance

The Danish company VIPP (famous for its iconic 1939 wastebasket, now in the MOMA) has created a prefab tiny home designed down to the last detail (flashlight included). Their 592-square-foot “plug and play getaway” wasn’t designed to blend into nature, but to float above it; fifty thousand pounds of glass and steel serve as a frame for the surrounding landscape. VIPP designer Morten Bo Jensen explains that the shelter wasn’t designed as a piece of architecture, but an industrial object. The prefab structure is built in a factory and the four modules are transported by truck to the site. The...
