    While the sliding bookcase is a neat feature, I’m not sure I’d like the resulting and blank wall. Seems too bare for me. Also, is it a good idea to store records by the radiators?

    Niced esign. It Would be helpful to include design fees. Deepening radiator wells Makes it more difficulty to open windows — and Those windows are wide. BTW, has 1,400 sq ft duplex in lower Manhatan is at least $ 1.5 million, more if Bought Recently.

    Like the best bookcase in the living room. When Moved over the stairs, the bare wall is far too stark.

    Definitely clever! Everyone needs storage and nobody needs to know how much stuff you really have. These are definitely great ideas to create a minimalist yet functional space!

    Crafting creative storage solutions Indeed is an art form. I detest clutter so I appreciate all of the Personally Mike’s imaginative solutions for His Manhattan customers. Past customers-have a wide extended family and wanted maximum cold storage In Their kitchen so roll-out refrigerated cabinets Was the ‘go to’ solution for Their design / new construction needs. All is possible, with good creative and construction. Great job!

    The highlight of this apartment is the staircase and the smart use of every inch of space Above and below it. The glass wall dividing the staircase and the office desk further Top enlarges the area visually. Terrific to see How Many ideas can be packaged into a single structural element.
