We Want Your Feedback for Our Next Project: LifeEdited Apartment #2 (LE2)

With over 60% of the world’s population living in cities by 2030, our future demands a new way of life–one that is smarter, cleaner and adapts with the times. LifeEdited shows how the future lives. LifeEdited is building spaces as well as showcasing products and companies that meet and anticipate the needs of the future.

LifeEdited was launched by Treehugger.com founder Graham Hill in late 2010 with a 420 square foot New York City apartment (LE1). This is the second – more challenging project at 350 square feet (32 square meters) of sleek function. While we have most of the design in place, we are looking for ways to improve the project. In particular, we are looking for ways to design more cost-effectively, simplify the design, make appropriate product choices (appliances, electronics, etc.).
