Architect Tim Seggerman has converted a 420-square-foot apartment into an unfolding living space. Despite its tiny size, Seggerman equipped the studio with a corner dedicated to reading and a fully functional laundry station.

Seggerman modeled his re-design on the concept of a jewelry box. Much like the box, sliding doors unveil a myriad of rooms and nooks. He has in this way made the living quarters not only multifunctional, but also somehow airy and even spacious. He has moreover countered the many problems that are presented by cramped city living, and it follows that he chose to focus on New York's Upper West Side here, a region that is no stranger to confined real estate.
