The Challenge: to design a 420sf ultra-low-footprint apartment that still has the same functionality as any everyday apartment.
This competition was inspired and founded by treehuger, Graham Hill, who believes that the key to better living is less stuff and smaller living spaces. With the right technology ad creative design, 420 square feet will allow for a functional home that allows the occupant to work at home, have 2 guests stay over, a 12 person sit-down dinner, lounge space for 8 and extra room on the side.
The challenge is to redefine the space with these criteria in mind, and create an innovative space that will benefit the environment as well as provide the comforts of a home to the occupants.
Registration and submission deadline: January 17th, 2011
