Name: Paul
Location: West Village
Size: 250 sq/ft
Type: Studio

The Pitch:

This 250 SF space was gut-renovated by a sculptor before I bought it. A modern retrofit of a 19th century tenement, this was the most efficient use of space I'd seen. Details include huge wall of shelving, cast-in-place concrete countertop, working fireplace, concealed storage, custom cabinetry and closets, wheeled, metal table, murphy bed, and a pivoting partition.

Small size forces me to minimize. Bare chartreuse and pale blue walls maximize the sense of space. Textured plexi taped to windows filters natural light for privacy my first-floor studio. Utilitarian bath works for me. I've made or scavenged all the furniture.
