Is it possible for a couple to live and work together harmoniously in 650 square feet? Robert Garneau of Studio Garneau takes us through intelligent urban living in his design of a small apartment in New York’s neighborhood of Chelsea.
Whatever the budget, every urbanite grapples with not having enough space. With a few sleights of hand and some hardworking hardware, Garneau (his firm is a member of the Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory) plays magician, seeming to pull living and storage space out of nowhere effortlessly, transforming a 650-square-foot studio into a one-bedroom live/work apartment for a couple who run their office from home. Beware–when you’re not looking, he may just transform it back again.
