Have you ever dreamed about living in a super futuristic apartment with movable walls, foldable furniture and multifunction appliances? (I’m not the only one, am I?) If you have ? integrated design group AvroKO  (of PUBLIC  fame) has the answer to all your Jetsons fantasies. They are launching Smart.Space  this weekend, an ambitious project which involves buying small Manhattan apartments and completely overhauling them ? transforming them into the coolest, most efficient, most-high tech apartments around. If you like modernist murphy beds  and other folding furniture, this is the apartment for you. There is even a guest bedroom hidden inside a wall. Efficiency does come with a hefty price tag, though. The very small 2 BR apartments (both about 600 sq ft each) are priced at roughly $1,350 a square foot.
Smart.Space is debuting this weekend, and opening the west village apartments to the public for the first time, between 1 ? 3pm, Sat & Sun. Details can be found here.
