Manhattan Apartment Architecture that Morphs

Moving parts, make this cosy space into a very usable and multifunctional space.
Michael K Chen Architecture, are the designers that brought this project to life.  They transformed this 1920’s co-op building apartment (check this link it has some amazing posts) situated in Manhattan, New York, too be an up to date living space.  This is how they describe it:  "The 5:1 Apartment integrates the functional and spatial elements for living, working, sleeping, dressing and entertaining, plus a kitchen, dining and bathing spaces within 390ft² (36m²)".  The TV swivels 180 degrees so that it can be viewed in both versions of the transformations, the living room and the bed arrangement.  The only thing I haven't seen is the bathroom, I know it's not the focus of this project, but it would be nice to see.  I have included an animated GIF that shows more of how this apartment morphs.
