Text description provided by the architects. 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.
