Ultra Tiny Apartment that Is Big on Surprises

Tiny houses are becoming increasingly common, but there is none like this little small apartments in Paris. At only 130 square meters, this micro-apartment was once the master bedroom of a large living space. Now the space got to be the home to everything you need in the space of an incredibly tiny room. The creation of this incredible space was a collaboration between architects Marc Baillargeon and Julie Nabucet. In order to make the 130 square meters apartment habitable, some creative steps needed to be taken. The sofa can disappear beneath the raised platform kitchen to create an open space. A home office/workspace is on the other side of the room under some large windows and hanging storage closets. But when it’s time to turn in the night, the “sofa” shows even more to reveal a full size bed. The discreet hideaway makes it almost impossible to guess that there is a whole bed hidden inside.

The surprises do not end up in the living room, though. The stairs leading from the main hall of the kitchen conceal a smart storage area beneath the wooden steps. The bathroom next to the kitchen is a bright and airy space with a flood of natural light. A sliding door closes off the space and provides a teeny-tiny shelter in a teeny-tiny apartment.

    • 130 m² = 1,399 ft². I own a two-bedroom, two-bathroom house that is just over 1,000 ft². If this Paris apartment is truly 130 m², it is more spacious than my home.

  1. It’s actually 16m² or 172 ft². It’s shown on Julie Nabucet’s website under Projects –> Bien vivre dans 16m².
