Phenomenal cosmic powers, itty-bitty living space

I’m always intrigued by the desire to live in compact spaces – whether it is seeing how they manage to fit impressive buildings into small pockets of land on Grand Designs, or a great layout on a narrow boat. Today I stumbled across this video from Gizmodo, in which there is some great design thinking on display to make the most of zero space in a New York City apartment.

I love these concepts, but I know immediately that I wouldn’t have the patience to pack and unpack everything each time I wanted to use it. I am quite messy by nature and like to just pick things up and put them down so they’ll be right there when I need them next time.

But still, this is all kinds of genius.
