Without some forethought and creativity, small spaces can be difficult to adjust to. In an atypically tall and narrow Paris apartment, designers Clemence Eliard and Marc Sirvin of Agence SML managed to create a light-filled and spacious-feeling home of four levels, totalling a tiny 269 square feet.
Different functions are necessarily grouped on specific levels to keep the spaces organized. The lowest floor has the bathroom, the second is dedicated to a kitchen with one double storey wall, the office occupies the third floor, and a cozy lofted bedroom -- lit by a triad of skylights -- crowns the whole design.
Details like mirrored walls, an open metal gird floor for the office to let in natural light to lower floors, and alternating stair treads help to maximize light and space.
Small but appealing thanks to these thoughtful touches, the designers turned the tight flaws of this unusually shaped apartment into a surprising advantage. More over at Agence SML.
