How do you make a tiny New York City apartment into a livable 240-square foot space with a sleeping loft? You enlist the help of Brooklyn architect Tim Seggerman, who renovated this Upper West Side brownstone studio into what it is today.

The space was in poor shape to begin with so they incorporated blond woods to build the interior out, including the loft over the kitchen.

A nook creates a cubby-like library to crawl into.

Can you believe they were able to fit a washing machine in there?!
