Red Nest, an Incredible 23 Square Meter Apartment in Paris

Red Nest, an Incredible 23 Square Meter Apartment in Paris

Space maximization is a growing trend lately in apartment design. Countries like China or Japan make enormous efforts to come up with ideas for small places due to the fact that their urban population is increasing at a rate never encountered before. Today’s apartment however is located in Paris and comes from designer Paul Coudamy. Entitled Red Nest, this original project houses a bedroom, a dressing area and a home office all “squeezed” into just 23 square meters. You probably wonder how this was possible. The uncommon crib houses ingenious solutions that counterweight the lack of space. First off, the bed and dressing area can be hidden by a mobile bookshelf, that is very easy to maneuver. Two way mirrors are used to delimit rooms and create the feeling of space. We also noticed an interesting “shelter” in the ground, but didn’t find more information about its functionality. If you happen to know what it serves as, please let us know. All in all, this red and white apartment seems like an ideal place to live in without making any compromises regarding style or function. Do you agree? – Via – Mocoloco

    The bathroom can spotted in the last two photos, Fahad. We tend to believe it is the entrance too.

    There’s no kitchen or eating area. How odd.

    Whats with the naked man ghost in the bathroom? He’s got pretty firm glutes.

    It seems just another simple solution to separate the bed and tidy up the little room a bit.

    You can see in the mirror that there is a window opposite the sink, so no entrance there. (The brown door leads to the restroom, the bathtub is behind the sink.) I believe the hole is the stairs down.

    it is unbelievable…just imagine how convenience to stay in such a lovely place..

    I think that the hole is the entrance of the apartment. If you see the plan there is no door in it…so…
    Great post!

    Love the moving component in this design! We recently designed a closet that had a really awkward layout and use movable shelving inside to allow easier access. Let us know what you think of it also.

    The “hole” is the spiral staircase marked on the floorplan and the naked guy is modeling the two-way mirror in the bathroom.

    It is an interesting functionable design for a smal apartment!
