|If you find your apartment a bit claustrophobic at times, spare a thought for this young New Yorker.
Architect Luke Clark Tyler designs grand houses for clients from his tiny 78 square foot shoebox apartment.
There is no space for a kitchen, or bathroom, and he had to build a bed from scratch because it is too narrow to fit full-sized ones inside.
Mr Tyler, 27, keeps books, cutlery, plates, cleaning products, spices, a microwave, sneakers, clothes and his toothbrush in one small cupboard.
His rent is $800 a month, which is cheap for the area but extortionate considering the cost per square footage ratio.
The average rental price per square foot in a studio is $72 but Mr Tyler is paying almost twice as much at $123.07.
Despite the limited supply of space, he still has a 'man drawer'.
'Having lived in both the largest shelter in the South East as well as the largest slum in East Africa, I don’t think living small is a challenge,' he said
