Tiny flat in Paris by Richard Guilbault

This 30 square-meters tiny flat located in Paris, France. Architect Richard Guilbault transformed it in 2015 and highlighted apparent connections of the former walls by a white concrete filling to tell the history of the flat. Those lines enliven a classic wood floor of the Parisian flat.

According to the architect,

With the new space organization, the living room takes up 2/3 of the living surface area (instead of 1/3 before) and enjoys the light coming from the 4 windows of the flat. The custom-made bathroom is comfortable and takes up only 2.3 sqm. Discreet and intimate, the new sleeping space hides a voluminous storage chest; the raising of the bed makes an atypical and comfortable space, like a cabin; the wide sliding door allows to be isolated from the living room.

Since the entrance, a long wall of storage is running along the complete length of the flat. It is punctuated by 4 niches and a game of contrast between the white and birch plywood front panels. This multipurpose piece of furniture, the backbone of the flat, absorbs all the technical needs of the flat and the different needs of the owners: electric panel, storage, appliances, pantry, fridge, wine cellar, TV, dressing room…
In this small area, everything is deliberately pure and refined. The white surfaces are a carrier for more natural substrates like birchwood or more graphic ones like the cement tiles and the kitchen credenza in kaleidoscope mosaic.
