In the U.S., when we say "The Village" we mean the very cool area of Greenwich Village in New York city. Thank you to Valentina for posting a link to this apartment in an historic building there that greatly needed extensive renovation. This design and another of the rear with a bathroom and utility closet together give my ideas for renovation of the entire apartment. Both views are given from the entry in the kitchen and my goal was to provide as complete and comfortable environment with as much storage space as possible. The rear can be found here. Valentina's original post can be found here. The real estate page with floor-plan and more views of the original space can be found here. I also want to add that if anyone else wants to try the whole space are any part of it, please feel free to remix (a real remix, please!) or use the whole blank space I made public here. It's in a very desirable and beautiful location and has a magnificent roof garden and patio for the entire massive complex. Well worth the investment to a buyer in my view.
