Teeny Tiny Apartments
There's an interesting article in the San Francisco Chronicle today about a new residential development of "micro units" (studios measuring less than 350 square feet). While the design looks fresh and modern, the article's secription doesn't sound like the best use of the space. The article refers to two-burner cooktops and mini sinks. I managed to have a four-burner stove with an oven and a full-size sink in my little studio on 10th Street, which makes me wonder why they couldn't have fit in here. I also think staging the spaces with sofa beds is a little silly--I don't know anyone who'd opt for a sofa bed as her day-to-day bed. Do you? What about a Murphy bed?
