Super-Tiny Apartment Just 8 Sqm in Size Wows with Creative Multi-functional Wall

There are plenty of tiny apartments that we have featured on Decoist, but few if any were as tiny as this super-small apartment in Paris that is no more than just 8 square meters in size. The ergonomic and self-sufficient apartment unit was once a maids room and it sits on the attic level of a building that is both timeless and elegant. The homeowners wanted a space that could function all on its own and hence Kitoko Studio had to fit in a small kitchenette, loft bed, dining area and a bathroom into the limited area without sacrificing sense of spaciousness. This was achieved using the all that houses everything from dining chairs and foldable table to stairway and a whole lot more!

The maid rooms were never originally built to function as individual housing units on their own and this means the architects had to start from scratch to transform the unit entirely. The white wall with lovely design also ensures that the light inside the apartment is spread evenly thorough out and a loft sleeping area elevates the functionality further. The gray kitchenette in the corner offers a minimal cooking area while a closet that comes out of the space under the bed keeps the wardrobe neat. A superb makeover that is just unbelievable!

The architectural response we made in order to implement many different functions refers to the “concept of the Swiss Army knife.” The Swiss Army Knife is a simple knife but, by a game of sliding and folding, it can contain a multitude of tools in a very small object. Therefore, the new maid’s room is a modular transcription of such an object…
