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.
