When architect Julie Nabucet was asked to fit the rooms of a full-sized apartment in a 129-square-foot (12 m2) flat in the center of Paris (Montorgueil quarter), she didn’t have much options than to stack things up.
She elevated the kitchen and rolled a bed-slash-sofa underneath. Pulled out halfway, it’s a couch; pulled out fully, it’s a bed.
To separate the cooking area from the sleeping/living room she used plywood boxes stacked as a wall.
The boxes facing the kitchen are used as cabinets; those facing the bedroom are used as bookshelves.
In the two-square-meter bathroom (21-square-feet), she squeezed an “Italian shower” (wet bath). However, there wasn’t enough space for a sink so she placed this outside the bathroom.
To separate it from the kitchen she created a wooden netting that gives a sense of isolation, but allows light to pass through.
