Small spaces come with their own set of unique challenges. But just because you’re short on space doesn’t mean you can’t live large. And today, I’m showing you how one compact apartment (measuring a mere 660 square feet) was transformed into a fashionable – and most importantly functional – home by my friend, Andrés (Dru) Ortega.
After moving in in 2019, Dru and his partner lived – and worked – in this 660-square-foot NYC apartment during the entire pandemic (which is no small feat in such a small home).

So we’re sharing 5 of the best small space tips from Dru’s apartment – and showing you how to make your own small space even more functional.
