Magnificently Minute Spaces

Designing a small space can stretch the imagination. Meet two Los Angeles designers who revamped a tiny shack; check out a Brooklyn house built around a tree; tour a labor of love outside Boston; and visit a West Village Victorian.

Low-Profile Kitchen

When Laurent Turin and Louis Molina found this 580-square-foot, teardown house, they couldn't pass it up. They gutted the house and combined living, dining and kitchen space on one side. The bedroom is separated from the living space by a "bath box." Integrated skylights and sliding glass doors on both sides of the house expand the visual space. They love their perfect, tiny home.

Because the kitchen is part of the main living space, the homeowners went low profile in design. The cabinetry is mounted low, hidden behind the tall kitchen island that serves as a low wall. If you can't afford the space to hide your cabinetry in this fashion, paint the cabinets the same color as the wall and remove the handles to blend them into the space.
