‘Sunk-in Treasure’

20130410-081003.jpg

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)

This small modern house is located near Villarrica, Chile and has a view over a valley to the Villarrica Volcano. For a relatively small house, it has a fairly complex and dynamic shape. The house consists of two opposing shed-roofed volumes separated by a small courtyard. Architect Rodrigo del Castillo of Chilean studio DOM designed the two volumes to correspond to the client’s request for a house with a separate flexible-use space.
