The judges have spoken - their pick for the smallest, coolest home in the world...
Congratulations to our First Place winners, Tony and Hillary of the 3-in-1 Studio in Brooklyn!
Good show!Congratulations. I was impressed with the clever use of built-ins.
Congratulations to the winners; this apartment really stayed true to the original spirit of the contest. There were so many large, boring entries this year it was easy for Hillary and Tony's place to stand out. That cube is quite something.
Completely deserving if only for the impressive organization! I've never seen a more functional space. Very inspiring-- congratulations!
Yay! This was my favourite. Congratulations to Tony and Hillary, and their super-cute cat!
I think this entry truly fell under "small and cool"; the use of built ins really took advantage and enhanced a small space.Good job!
Congrats to you both, but now that you won can we get a description of how you built those amazing MDF creations: the side tables, coffee table, and cube storage. Are all those cubes just stacked or are they one big peice???
Well deserved! Innovative and truly small!
I agree with Sydney - function, form and decoration in that order, in a small living space. The larger apartments and homes don't present with the same challenges, so they don't reflect much beyond decorating/color choices. Let's not go so big next year.
Can't say "my favorite" enough. Once again, bravo guys.
Thanks everyone!We're really happy to have won amongst so many strong entries.Feel free to e-mail me (Hilary): firstname.lastname@example.org with detail questions.Hilary & Tony
Well deserved win. Love your place.
Yay, congrats. My favorite for sure! My husband and I still get cuted out thinking about your cat meowing before climbing the ladder. :)
Congrats.. it's an amazing space! Good work!
Congrats!Keep us posted of what you guys got with your gift vouchers at Room & Board.
yay, this was my top pick too :)
Congratulations! You guys definitely deserved to win--if not for that amazing cube thing alone, then for the perfectly executed design theme of "everything in its right place." I've taken a lot of inspiration from your space myself!
YAY! This one was my favorite!
Congrats! Easily my favorite.Did you design & build the loft yourselves?
The world is as it should be....
This was definitely my favorite. Congratulations!!
This was my favorite too. Small, cool, innovative and intriguing. Great use of space and a wonderful coherent design, leading to a lovely, cheerful and comfortable looking space. Congrats!
This definately deserved to win. I think this is what the spirit of "small cool" is all about. They came up with a really unique way to handle their apartment being "square-footage" challenged.It's not just that they built a loft. They built a multi-functional piece. I think my favorite part of the whole thing is the hidden-away office on the interior of the loft.
