Yep, It Can Get Smaller: A 130-Square-Foot Apartment in Paris

Tiny Paris apartment

Like many of you, we're obsessed with tiny homes. New York City microstudios measuring 325 square feet, San Francisco apartments at 160 square feet -- good things come in small packages, we say! And just when we thought it couldn't get any smaller, we saw this: A teeny, tiny 130-square-foot apartment in Paris!

Though many of you would automatically think "nightmare," it's actually a pretty clean, uncluttered and streamlined space! Storage is largely hidden inside sleek, built-in shelving, and a split-level floorplan was implemented to ensure greater flexibility and the illusion of space. (The bed, for example, can be tucked right underneath the raised "kitchen area"). Like NYC's microstudio, all the furniture is custom-made and modular, and it gives the apartment the feel of a jewel box.

Thibaut Menard, a student and the son of the apartment's owner, is the Paris microstudio's current inhabitant, and he told Wired that he noticed "new architectural features every day." The studio was designed by Julie Nabucet and Marc Baillargeon. We dig it (being located in Paris doesn't hurt, either), but do you? Would you live in this 130-square-foot apartment?
