You might remember architecture firm Normal Projects from the amazing 450 square foot unfolding apartment they designed in Manhattan. Michael Chen and Kari Anderson approach space planning from several different angles, combining architecture with industrial design and custom furniture-making. Their residential projects are inspiring examples of problem-solving — here are four of our favorites.
When the architects renovated two adjoining apartments in an old building, they used screens and room dividers to cleverly combine space into one multi-functional living space. A wall of low shelving provides storage, while sliding custom panels allow the space to be configured in several different ways.
