Maximizing every inch of this 1,500-square-foot New York apartment was the goal of this renovation. It succeeds by improving circulation via new door openings and reimagining static spaces to serve new functions. The architectural technique of compression and release as well as a reflective ceiling also helps by perpetuating the illusion of spaciousness.
