The founder of TreeHugger.com has launched a new program where he has purchased a 420 square foot apartment and is taking ideas on how to design the space. The winner gets their plan implemented and $70,000! He just put out this very good video about the project and downsizing.
With some design and technology magic, we think 420 square feet can allow for working at home, space for 2 guests to stay over, a sit-down dinner for 12, lounge space for 8, and maybe even a steam room.
To find the best designs, Graham created Life Edited with Mutopo and Jovoto as an open challenge to design an ultra low footprint space. We’re inviting people to propose, discuss and evaluate designs with the goal of inspiring people to consider small living spaces.
