See a 390-Square-Foot Studio Morph Into 5 Different Rooms

This sounds like an urban myth, but it isn't: In Gramercy, there's a 390-square-foot studio that holds a queen-sized bed, living area, dining area for four, a decent amount of storage, and still has room for entertaining. The catch? The apartment is essentially robotic. The same architecture firm behind one of the city's most famous micro-digs, MKCA, bestowed the foldable apartment treatment onto this compact space and created 5:1, a highly-proficient studio that uses a mechanized moving wall to form different areas when needed throughout the day (h/t The Contemporist).

Witness the sorcery over on Curbed NY. >>
