This 78 square foot studio in Midtown Manhattan was my smallest residence in the US. I designed another transformable bed (full size) with a dark stained wood and inset black board panels. It was similar to a murphy bed but the long side was hinged since the apartment wasn't wide enough for the more traditional orientation. When the bed was up, the couch was exposed and made the room more like a living room. I used the area under the couch for storage and covered the corner cabinet with a large door similar in style to the bed for concealing the rest of my belongings from clothing to dishware as well as a printer and microwave. I also build a desk top that was supported by a mini-fridge on one end and some cabinets on the other. With so many small and efficient storage areas I was able to live and work in this space full time without sacrificing a very clean, clutter-free, and airy space.
