The LifeEdited Apartment: Compact and Convertible

May 18th, 2012 | Posted by sschultz in Design | Green Building | Green Homes | Living Green | Sustainability

The LifeEdited Apartment transforms to allow for all aspects of home life in just 420 sf

Graham Hill’s LifeEdited apartment is finally complete and, in a recent article, the New York Times is calling it the apartment of the future!

Launched in 2010, the project began as an international competition. Graham Hill (the founder of Treehugger) challenged designers around the world to come up with a design that would allow for a large sit-down dinner party, comfortable lounging for 8, space for overnight guests (with privacy), a home office, a hideable kitchen and more! The winning design was submitted by Romanian architecture students Catalin Sandu and Adrian Iancu and construction began!

The build out of the apartment included many green features from the drywall and the insulation to FSC flooring and 0-VOC paints!

Graham Hill’s project is a thought provoking and inspiring demonstration of just how little space, and how little stuff, it actually takes to live a 21st century American lifestyle. Transforming apartments, along with transforming furniture and compact appliances, are becoming more and more popular and that means that soon, more and more of us may have the opportunity to live large by living small – just like Graham Hill.  Visit the LifeEdited website for more inspiring examples of compact living spaces and innovative, space-saving products.

    Uniqueness about this chat site is that, your chats are completely anonymous.

  • I was going to take a shot at realism for the game,
    but as I just said. The first thing to consider is the range of your weapon. Herein Airsoft guns
    are less expensive because of the ammunition that is
    used making the guns less prone to “jamming. These guns are very robust and do not require any outer power component. There are storylines used to keep the game going, and videos are placed throughout the field that can be watched in game which will help give more information to the players as to what is going on and how such a thing may have occured.
