Sibling Shared Bedroom in NYC

We had a pretty significant set of challenges. We live in Manhattan and have a boy and a girl ages 10 and three. So space is super-premium and we have a massive age spread. We were going to split the room into two smaller spaces, but the kids wildly protested and we were left with the task of figuring out how to give a boy and a girl seven years apart a place to sleep, work and play that would be suitable for both of them.
