Small 10-Square-Meter Room Converted Into A Fully Functional Paris Apartment [Pics]
Intelligent design converts what used to be a master bedroom, into a luxury studio in the French capital.
Marc Baillargeon and Julie Nabucet have demonstrated that you don’t need a lot of space in order to live at large. The two architects have transformed a 10-square-meter space (130 square feet) into a luxury studio apartment, equipped with a convertible sofa bed, bathroom, and kitchen.
Situated in the Montparnasse neighborhood of Paris, the apartment used to be a master bedroom in a larger apartment. Now, a student and the son of the apartment’s owner comfortably lives there.
Baillargeon explained that, “Our approach to architecture is that the house is not so much a machine for living, but a tool for living well… The studio has been created in a very intelligent and adaptable way of thinking.” One clever trick they designed was raising the floor of the kitchen area to create the illusion of separate spaces without using walls or dividers.

During a webinar on Thursday July 13th at 10am, the PSFK research team will be presenting findings from our most recent report, Future of Manufacturing. For this project, we looked at how brands and organizations can meet elevated consumer needs and combat increased market competition by leveraging connected technologies that give total insights to manage their end-to-end operations and the opportunity to integrate cutting-edge technologies to reinvent supply chains.
Christina Agapakis, creative director at Ginkgo Bioworks, discussed how she uses her background in science and collaborates with engineers, designers, artists and social scientists to explore the many unexpected connections between microbiology, technology, art and popular culture.
