This project has been completed by New York based architectural bureau Jordan Parnass Digital Architecture. They took a typical cramped elongated studio in East Village and expanded the space vertically. This allowed them to add many full-sized amenities, including bedroom, home office, entertainment area, walk-in closet, and lots of storage.

Designers explain: “Economy, functionality and privacy were the primary drivers in the design of this sixth floor home office studio. Meticulously detailed millwork provides ample storage, making this small-footprint apartment extremely efficient. A bedroom loft creates space for a roomy walk-in closet below, while stair risers conceal a series of built-in drawers. Every inch of the space has been effectively exploited.”

The light color scheme adds airiness to the space, and the wooden finish of the central service core gives it warmth. And because all private paraphernalia is hidden inside the loft element (a huge win for a one-room apartment) – the space can be used as an office as well as home.

Would love more details on the dimensions and layout. I am struggling with an east village apt that seems to be very similar but this may have more space but I’m not sure where the bathroom is located and how everything managed to fit.

This is such a fantastic design. The cabinets all the way to the top and the stairs doing double duty as storage pure genius!
