Transformer Loft

It has small-space solutions galore, and the creative layout of this tiny New York City apartment uses every inch of space — a foldout bed and modern built-in storage encouraged Houzzers to bring the same smart ideas to their homes.


Brimming with design solutions, creative layouts and memorable architectural touches, these homes topped the interest charts this year.


A loft-like apartment that's 650 square feet but feels spacious, has generous light and is efficiently designed is a rarity in the dense landscape of urban sprawls. Which is why you might have to pick up your jaw off the floor after seeing how architect Robert Garneau has transformed what was a rundown prewar studio into a modern and adaptable open space.
