Lots more on TreeHugger founder Graham Hill's LifeEdited apartment over at faircompanies. The full "before" video featuring a SuChin Pak-led tour of the then-cramped (and shower-less) space prior to its extensive, crowdsourced redesign can also be found here.
Of course, there's also the fantastic LifeEdited website which doesn't simply detail the space-saving nuts and bolts — moving walls! Magnetized curtains! Murphy beds! Multifunctional everything! — of Hill's slick "LE1" apartment in SoHo. Rather, Hill's vision has been extended into a full-on lifestyle brand centered around designing "your life to include more money, health and happiness with less stuff, space and energy."
