Apartment #13: Patrick’s Cosmo-Urban Studio Rental
Name: Patrick (the other one)
Location: Lincoln Center area

I am proud of this space mostly because I seriously lost control of it, a space so overwhelmed with clutter I was embarrassed to let in building maintenance.
This isn’t a story about built-ins or clever construction, as much as it is of salvation and redemption.
It’s mostly about celebrating the “givens” (negative and positive) of a rental. But it’s also a lot about organizing space with careful choice and visual trick, and how a lot of editing and a little discipline came together to maximize the smallest space I’ve inhabited since college.
