SMOKE BREAK #1013: Tiny New York City Apartment Divides 420 Sqft. Into 8 Spaces

Making the internet rounds today was a Gizmodo video depicting a miniature apartment in New York City that is so modular that it can be split into as many as 8 different spaces. Oddly enough, there’s a BC connection to the innovative use of space that goes beyond the fact that it’s “420” square feet (puff puff, har har). The Soho digs were designed by one of the coolest people in the universe, Graham Hill. He’s the founder of the always informative Treehugger.com, brother to famed BC outdoorsman Greg Hill, and son to awesome Revelstoke parents (who, by sheer coincidence, sold us their kickass van last year). Small place. Small world.
