In a city where real estate investors compete to purchase “air rights“, it’s clear that space is valued at a ridiculously high premium. New York City, otherwise known as the Big Apple, ironically boasts the tiniest apartments.

Thus, with these two realities in mind and when planning the floor plan of his pint-sized piece of Soho, TreeHugger founder Graham Hill brilliantly and literally thought inside the box, placing a bold underline on the English proverb “Necessity is the mother of invention.”

With just a mere 350 square feet to work with, he and a team of brilliant contributors designed and constructed eight transformable rooms that literally maximizes every square inch of his apartment. Mr. Hill is proud of this innovative venture and owes a lot of his inspiration to “The City”. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again…I love New York.
