Graham Hill began experimenting with small space living in 2010 when he bought two units in a pre-war coop in New York City’s Soho. He ran a competition to redesign the first rundown flat, and the winners, Romanian architecture students Catalin Sandu and Andrei Butusina, created a moving wall and transformable furniture so the one room could function as three or four. He sold LifeEdited1, or LE1, a few years ago and began work on his second experiment in living with less, LE2, which he hoped would be more affordable and less of a white box. This time he and his team created sliding couch-cubes that can be pushed from room to room to add seating to a couch/dining room or to configure into a queen-sized bed. There’s also lots of felt to absorb sound (both on walls and as a dividing curtain). Ditching LE1’s movable wall - it didn’t block sound and was too expensive - the LifeEdited crew settled for an accordion door (it shrinks to one-tenth it’s expanded size and can fit into tiny closet in the wall). More often found in conference halls or schools, here the expando-wall divides the guest bedroom/office from the rest of the space. “When it's out it has the acoustic properties of a 2-by-4 insulated stud wall with drywall so it's very effective at sound insulation.” LE1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYV0qATsyts More info on LE2: http://lifeedited.com/lifeedited-2/ LE2 is for sale: https://www.corcoran.com/nyc-real-estate/for-sale/soho-nolita/150-sullivan-street-apt-33/5521991 Original story: https://faircompanies.com/videos/graham-hills-nyc-tiny-flat-2-attunes-l-space-to-the-moment/
Calling it “a social network with an address”, Los Angeles entrepreneur Elvina Beck created PodShare, a coliving experiment where dozens of “Podestrians”- travelers, mobile workers or new arrivals to the city- share a communal space filled with sleeping pods or “bunk beds for adults”. Beck, who built the first PodShare in 2012 with her father, wanted to respond to her demographic’s rejection of widespread home ownership and embrace of the sharing economy. She set out to transform the American bunk bed, creating a more open (and co-ed) version of the Japanese capsule hotels. For $40 to $50 per night (or discounted weekly and monthly prices), Podestrians can choose a bottom or top sleeping pod (equipped with a lamp and a small flatscreen television with Internet access) along with all the shared spaces, including a kitchen (with communal food, and space for individual storage in the pantry and fridge), bathroom, showers (toiletries included) and a communal lounge. Currently, there are 3 locations in Los Angeles, but Beck sees the model as scalable across the country and, similar to a gym, members could have overnight access at any location. PodShare doesn’t own any of the locations, but instead rents empty space from landlords. They stay away from residentially-zoned properties and instead focus on converting commercial or live/work spaces. Beck and her partner Kera Package have evolved the pods so they are now modular and totally mobile so they can go up and down at any location when a lease ends. In reflection of the sharing economy’s privilege of “access” over “ownership”, Beck tries to outfit each location with extras like bicycles and instruments. She hopes each location will eventually have bigger extras, like a gym or pool. Currently, the Hollywood location even has a recording studio and editing bay.

Is it a ship or a tiny house? Together Steph and Greg Parham designed and built their dream tiny home, the San Juan. They originally moved into together in a much smaller tiny home and quickly learned what worked and what didn’t. In their new build, they fixed the problem issues and combined their distinct rustic and French country styles. The result: a gorgeous home that reflects both of them. Their tiny house was directly inspired by the San Juan mountains and the 4 corners region. The curvy roofline and angular back loft back give it a ship look. Their tiny was built on a 24’ trailer, but the unique loft bump out gives them an extra 5’ of usable space. It features many to-die-for design features, like a manual elevator bed, and stunning reclaimed materials like local barn wood. 👉 💑 🏡Interview with Greg and Steph’s on their love for CO, and how they are creating a Tiny House Homestead: https://youtu.be/3AeOd5LqkKo FEATURED: ✨🏡 More about the San Juan: https://rockymountaintinyhouses.com/?s=san+juan ⚒ Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses: https://rockymountaintinyhouses.com 👉🏡✨ Steph & Greg’s tiny house life: https://instagram.com/stephs_tiny_house_life 🚚🏡💨Adventures from their hometown, Durango, CO in Today’s Tiny House Parking Spot, E8: https://youtu.be/5wZLNbK7t3s ****************************************************************************Our Gear: Apple iPhone 7 128 GB: http://amzn.to/2BLn64u DJI Osmo 2 Mobile Handheld Smartphone Gimbal Stabilizer Videographer Bundle with Case, Flex Tripod, Base and Lens Maintenance Kit: https://amzn.to/2DoKry7 JOBY GorillaPod Focus with Ballhead X Bundle: https://www.amazon.com/GorillaPod-Ballhead-Bundle-Flexible-Camera/dp/B003II3FD0 Canon 5D Mark iii: http://amzn.to/2BMHbag ROKINON CINE DS T1.5 Cinema Lens Kit - 50mm + 35mm + 85mm + 24mm for Canon EF: http://amzn.to/2FE22ix Rokinon 85mm t/1.5 Lens for Canon: http://amzn.to/2DU5JjD Rokinon Cine 35mm T1.5 Wide Angle Cine Lens for Canon: http://amzn.to/2E9EpS5 Rokinon 24mm f/3.5 Tilt Shift Fixed Lens for Canon: http://amzn.to/2E7U0Bk Manfrotto MTPIXI-B PIXI Mini Tripod: https://amzn.to/2JP5ZEk Manfrotto MVK500AM Lightweight Fluid Video System with Twin Legs and Middle Spreader: https://www.amazon.com/Manfrotto-MVK500AM-Lightweight-System-Spreader/dp/B00CL9CHNQ Manfrotto Xpro Aluminum Video Monopod With 500 Series Video Head, Black: http://amzn.to/2DS88eE Zoom H1n Handy Recorder (2018 Model) with APH-1n Accessory Pack :http://amzn.to/2BOjkr0 Rode RodeLink FM Wireless Filmmaker System: http://amzn.to/2DPdPtN DJI Phantom 4 PRO Quadcopter Drone with 1-inch 20MP 4K Camera KIT, with Must Have Accessories and Range Extender: http://amzn.to/2DSwt48 Case Club Waterproof DJI Phantom 4 Drone Wheeled Case: http://amzn.to/2BNL7HX Dracast Complex High Color Camera LED Light with Battery Charger Combo: http://amzn.to/2BMRECX SanDisk Extreme PRO 64GB up to 95MB/s UHS-I/U3 SDXC Flash Memory Card: http://amzn.to/2nyx5VK G-Technology G-DRIVE with Thunderbolt 3 / USB-C 4TB: http://amzn.to/2DPe5sL G-Technology G-DRIVE mobile with Thunderbolt Portable Hard Drive 1TB: http://amzn.to/2FBL7gA SanDisk 32GB MicroSDHC Card: http://amzn.to/2BMPxPl SanDisk Extreme PRO 32GB CompactFlash Memory Card: http://amzn.to/2nzQvcD *************************************************************************** New to our Channel?

In 2010, we met Graham Hill- the founder of treehugger.com and a serial entrepreneur. He had just bought two tiny apartments in a century-old tenement building in Soho and he had plans to turn them into laboratories, and showcases, for tiny living. He'd spent most of the past year living in tiny spaces- "a tiny trailer, a tent, and then a boat" and he was convinced others would love it as much if small spaces could be designed right.
He wanted a tiny space that didn't sacrifice function, but instead that would expand to provide a wish list including dinner parties for 12, accommodations for 2 overnight guests, a home office and a home theater with digital projector. Not wanting to limit himself to local architects, he crowdsourced the design as a competition and received 300 entries from all over the world. Two Romanian architecture students won with their design "One Size Fits All".
Completed in 2012, his LifeEdited apartment doesn't resemble the cramped space we saw in 2010. Today the 420-square-foot space can be expanded to include the functionality of 1,100 square feet: walls, drawers and beds move and unfold to create 6 rooms: living room, dining room, office, guest office, master bedroom and guest bedroom. If you include the kitchen and the bathroom which morphs into a phone booth or meditation room, the apartment includes 10 total rooms.
