A Cool Tiny Moderne House Inside a Prewar Apartment

Over at AQQ Index we stumbled on this image, notated “Wayne Berg Living Room”. Who is Wayne Berg? The most we could find was a NY Times Obituary. Berg was an architect who gained fame in the ’80’s and ’90’s (he passed away in 1999); he was known for creating “substantial architecture on a human scale” and helping to reinvigorate modernism.

He must have designed this innovative room inside of a prewar apartment years before “tiny” became a movement. He cleverly built a small, very modern space that functions as bedroom and living room without cluttering the original space or feeling oppressive, a far cry from the usual loft bed.  The room has a curious feeling of lightness, and lives easily within the original space, which somehow keeps its integrity.

Many smart ideas in that one picture.
