‘Sunk-in Treasure’


Just another sweet small space design that I cannot stop obsessing about. I have to share this tiny treasure from Paris with you all!

Home to Paris this 130 sq ft micro apartment has taken added a whole new level in small space dwellings!
I have dubbed this build: “Sunk-in Treasure”:
Adding height and depth to this home is its unique characteristic of a sunk-in living space!

DISTINCT QUALITY: Notice the main room being a few steps down instead of the norm being up in loft idea, which produces an added measurable depth and illusion of more space to the entire interior.
A distinct bed position to note–with ‘hidden in plain site’ storage compartments throughout the micro-home.

(Personally, one of the most perfectly laid floor plans I have seen in 3 years of tiny house research)
