The 450-square-foot foldable apartment has hit the market asking $469,000, according to Gothamist. Third-grade-teacher Eric Schneider purchased the West 73rd Street apartment for just $235,000 in 2005. Soon after, he hired architects Michael Chen and Kari Anderson of Normal Projects to renovate his apartment.

The architects added what looks like a large closet that turns the studio into a four-in-one unfolding box, with a bedroom, living room, office and closet all inside. [Gothamist] Christopher Cameron
