This Lower East Side apartment by noroof architects uses smart layouts in plan and section to make room for family life. Add several custom-designed, multi-purpose furniture pieces and you have a living room, dining room and home office all in one! The project has been featured in Dwell and has won several awards for its efficient use of such a narrow apartment.
To see more pictures of the apartment, and learn more about the design process, visit the project page on the architects' website.
