The French architect Paul Coudamy has transformed this upper level of this small Parisian apartment.
Known for his custom solutions for small spaces, the architect made the most of the 23 square meters with a sliding bookshelf, bed and desk unit. The bookshelf slides to expose the bed to the room and hide the desk — or to expose the desk and wrap the bed in a little nook.
The challenge was to provide a 23m2 space with a bedroom, a bathroom, a dressing and a working space. The design is based on a work on the porosity of spaces.
The bookshelf is a mobile block that enables to control the opening of the bed. Its U-shape covers the bed and shapes the room by closing the dressing, the bed or the working space.
This mobile system provides a closed sheltered bed as wished by the client without completely shutting the space. A red carmine gloss paint reinforces the graphical dimension of the space and its delimitation by contrasting with the matt white walls.
The bathroom is covered with resinated concrete and the restroom is hidden behind the doors of a fake vintage wardrobe.
