In any small Parisian apartment, maximizing the living space is essential. Prior to its renovation, this Montmartre apartment lacked both natural light and generous spaces. Its new design offers a minimal yet functional two step process.
The existing plain wooden wall, that used to strongly divide the dwelling space, is reduced to its bare structure, creating a filter between the night and day zones within the studio apartment. The deconstructed wall is utilized as a display shelf, allowing the sunshine to reach the entire apartment.
The support spaces (bathroom, toilets, storage and kitchen) are anchored to the back wall of the apartment in a cubist arrangement of extruded red and white blocks.
