We've seen some mighty small apartments in our time, but Luke Clark Tyler's Midtown Manhattan studio may very well be the new winner. At just 78-square-feet, the architect's studio home is cozier than some walk-in closets, but the space works quite efficiently thanks to Tyler's architecture prowess. Read on to check out Kirsten Dirksen's video of this box-like bachelor pad, and you may even be able to take home some tips as Tyler explains how he created a flip-down bed for about $170.

    The space resembles a Parisian apartment. Do you live in France ? :)

    I really don't think we should be admiring 'dog box' apartments that exploitative landlords rent to people to be honest!

    That is entirely too small for me and holy OMG that is a very steep price to pay for such a small area. I have a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home that is 1257 sq. ft. with a 2 stall garage and a good sized fenced in yard that I pay only around $100.00 a month more for it. I am so glad that I don't live in NYC. I don't know how people can do that, but I do envy the creativity and the ability to build what you need in your home Tyler and all those who do this. I don't believe I would be very good at living in a small space such as Tyler is doing, but more power to Tyler for doing so. I think maybe I would look for a regular sized apartment with a couple other bedrooms in it and get a couple roommates to share the costs.

    I think I could live in a small space like that but I think I have sticker shock because he said he pays $800/mth for the space which includes shared bathroom. I guess you could easily party that for a bedroom on a shared apartment but that still seems a little excessive price wise.
