Apartment Therapy Media: Contests
Apartment Therapy &Room&Board Present
Anders Woodwind Bradshaw Chelsea


Because we've never accepted that a lack of space is fatal when it comes to creating an inspiring home and nothing thrills us more than the hand-made home or the stylish studio wedged into an urban crevice.


The Smallest, Coolest Apartment contest is for all small apartments and homes in the world, under 850 square feet (@ 79 square meters). We are seeking the most ingenious and beautiful submissions along with all the tips and resources we need to maximize our own homes.
