Manhattan Micro-Loft represents one of the biggest challenges that the Specht Harpman Architects faced successfully.
Located at the top of a brownstone on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, this tiny apartment occupied an area of 425 square feet and vertically 25 feet with access to a roof top. When rearranged, the place didn’t even have space for place a bed or a couch.
The companies resolution passed through the creation of four separate “living platforms”.
The lowest level has the entry and kitchen area.
The second level was conceived for the main living room space.
The third level receives a cantilevered bed pavillion that projects out into the main space.
The final stairs leads up to a roof garden.
Since the apartment is really small, all the areas have been exploited. Stairs, for example, were designed with the goal of built-in storage cabinetry and drawers below. The kitchen has hidden appliances, flip up high storage units for easy access and a countertop that wraps into the main living space.
Since there are a lot of built-in resources, furnishings are minimal in number with only a couch, coffee table, bed and a side chair.
