We've featured a few tiny living spaces before, but none of those are as tiny as this micro-apartment in Paris that measures in at an incredible 86 square feet. It's certainly one of the smallest apartments in France and may even rank in as one of the smallest in the world.
Located all the way on the seventh floor, the miniscule space was originally constructed as a maid's quarters, but was since converted into an apartment by Kitoko Studio -who took inspiration from the multi-fuctional Swiss Army Knife. Despite its tiny measurements, the apartment fits in a surprising amount of amenities, including a bathroom, a table for two, a wardrobe, a bookshelf, a kitchenette with a working cooktop, a cupboard and a private sleeping chamber.
The bathroom includes a shower, sink and toilet, while the kitchenette includes a hidden sink as well. While not in use, all of the amenities are hidden behind modular sliding units. Every inch of space in the shelving system is used, even the space under the stairs that lead to the bed space. The apartment is even equipped with a large window above the kitchenette, providing ample natural light to the resident.
While the space seems surprisingly functional after the clever rennovation, it is still too small to be legally rented out in the City of Lights. Fortunately, the owners of the space are using it as a living space for their au pair, who lives in the apartment for free.
