LE1 is the prototype for an extremely small, highly functional, transformable line of apartments that are being developed as models for sustainable living. Conceptually, less space uses less material, less energy and unburdens the user with the requirement to fill multiple rooms that are only used part of the time. Everything is designed with a purpose – typically more than one – and all furniture is built into the walls and either folds or slides out to convert from, say a couch to a queen bed. All materials, finishes, fixtures andappliances are high performance, green certified and highly efficient.
The Life Edited Project won an AIA award in 2013.
