What if we could save money, radically reduce our environmental impact, and have a freer, less complicated life?

Treehugger founder Graham Hill has part of the answer: we need to have less stuff and live in smaller spaces, like the 420sf (~39 m2) apartment in New York City he will renovate in 2011. 

With some design and technology magic, even small space can allow for almost anything - so we’re asking you to redesign a small space thinking about these core ideas

  • transforming space - use one space for work, play, sleep, guests
  • digitize everything - photos, books, music
  • from ownership to access - think car-sharing instead of owning, pay-per-view instead of downloading, smart space-sharing and subletting
  • only the essentials - cut down on extraneous stuff, leaving only what’s really necessary
