There are plenty of tiny apartments that we have featured on A&D, but few, if any, were as small as this super-small apartment in Paris that is no more than just 8 Sqm in size. The ergonomic and self-sufficient apartment unit was once a maid’s room, and it sits on the attic level of a building that is both timeless and elegant.
The homeowners wanted a space that could function all on its own. Hence, Kitoko Studio had to design an apartment and fit a small kitchenette, loft bed, dining area, and bathroom into the limited space of 8 Sqm without sacrificing a sense of spaciousness. This was achieved using all that houses everything, from dining chairs and foldable tables to stairways and a whole lot more!
The maid rooms were never originally built to function as individual housing units on their own, meaning the architects had to start from scratch to transform the unit entirely. The white wall with a lovely design also ensures that the light inside the apartment is spread evenly, and a loft sleeping area further elevates the functionality.
The gray kitchenette in the corner offers a minimal cooking area, while a closet that comes out of the space under the bed keeps the wardrobe neat. A superb makeover that is just unbelievable!

The architectural response we made in order to implement many different functions refers to the “concept of the Swiss Army knife.” The Swiss Army Knife is a simple knife, but by a game of sliding and folding, it can contain many tools in a tiny object. Therefore, the new maid’s room is a modular transcription of such an object.
