Well Designed 200 Sq. Ft Studio in NYC

Malena Georgieva, an aspiring interior designer, has done a lot with a little in her 200 sq. ft studio apartment in Manhattan's Upper West Side. Yes that's right, just 200 sq. ft. The space is definitely small; however, Ms. Georgieva has done a nice job working with what she has. The white walls and kitchen make the apartment appear larger, and she has used artwork to sort of give the different areas the feeling of separate rooms. Lastly, the use of chairs that swivel allow for one to face any section of the apartment. According to NY Curbed, she pays $1,750/mo for this tiny apartment. In any other city in America, including Los Angeles, this would sound like madness, but somehow almost sounds reasonable in the NYC.

The Sunset & Vine Tower; Hollywood's Tallest Building

I recently showed Hollywood's newest and tallest tower to a client, The Sunset & Vine Tower.

Lying at the corner of Sunset & Vine (you could probably guess that by the name) is CIM Group's newest project. Purchased in 2003, this building has undergone a complete renovation under the direction of Kanner Architects http://www.kannerarch.com/en/ . They did a great job, as the building is a great mix of exposed industrial elements but refined with drop down smooth ceilings, floor to ceiling walls of glass looking out to explosive views, and open loft like floor plans but with real bedrooms (a miss in the LA market in my opinion). Built to the highest condo specifications, the property is currently being leased as luxury apartments.
