Patrick Kennedy is a housing developer and a moving force behind the SmartSpaces development company. His vision is to built urban dwellings that would resemble¬†his 78-square-foot Airstream travel trailer in efficiency and small space creativity. In this interview, shot by wonderful¬†Kirsten Dirksen of Fair Companies, he shows a 160-square-foot test home (the smallest legal-sized apartment for California) inside a Berkeley wherehouse. In this prototipe, developers are testing space-saving ideas, trying to determine, which elements are mast-haves and which can be sacrificed. I was not particularly keen on the stainless steal base boards (or the remark about suntan), but everything else seemed to be right on. Do check it out, I wonder what you’ll think of this idea of a home.
