Comments Off on Graham Hill’s Famous 425-sq.-ft. Transforming Apartment is Up for Sale!

New York City has a lot of tiny apartments , but only one has won an AIA NY Honor Award and been featured in a TED talk. The famous 425-square-foot dwelling was home to Treehugger founder Graham Hill for the past few years, but is now on the market for $995,000 . The pricetag may sound hefty for such a small living space, but keep in mind that this clever home transforms in order to make room for a living room, a home office, a hideaway kitchen, two guest beds, a spacious lounging area with a home theater and even a 12-person dining area!
