This apartment was a small, one-person sized unlivable wreck when I found it, just before meeting my husband (another architect). Now, this 420 s.f. apartment houses us two minimalists and still feels huge.
We opened up a window into the bathroom, took out awkward closets, reconfigured the kitchen & added a dressing room & under bed storage. We did the gut renovation for under 35K, including all new plumbing & electrical upgrade, new flooring etc.... It works for parties and big dinners, and our friends (all architects) love the place.
