Eric Schneider Transforms 450-Sq. Foot Manhattan Apartment Into 'Origami' (VIDEO)

Stuck with a tiny apartment? Rather than squeeze your way into a cramped space and leave virtually no walking room for yourself, take a cue from Manhattan resident Eric Shneider and get creative.

Schneider, who bought his 450-square-foot apartment back in 2005, hired two architects to transform the space into an origami like apartment that unfolds into four different rooms, storage space included!

While Schneider's apartment might not be as small as Luke Clark Tyler's 78-square-foot, Hell's Kitchen studio, the transformation is quite impressive.
