Architizer A + Award Small Living Winners Announced
LifeEdited is proud to announce that we were given the Jury Award for the Architizer A + Award in the Small Living category. We are less proud–though hardly ashamed–that we were beat out for the Popular Award, i.e. the project that received the most public votes. That honor went to “Manhattan Micro Loft” by Specht Harpman Architects.
In truth, we were secretly lusting after the Manhattan Micro Loft. It’s beautiful interior with contrasting surfaces and textures exploited every inch of the space’s unique tall and small dimensions. Specth Harpman split the apartment’s 425 sq ft into four levels (the fourth being the green-roof patio). This vertical partitioning creates three spaces that are both discreet and flow together. The semi-open format also allows the whole apartment to share the window’s natural light.
Like the LifeEdited apartment, the “before” pictures are almost as interesting as the completed ones. It shows that with a little creativity (and yes, money), you can turn an inefficient and dilapidated small space into an aesthetic and functional masterpiece. Big congrats to Specht Harpman for their award and great design!
