Space-saving furniture in a tiny Paris apartment

Multifunctional furniture, compact solutions and a space-saving staircase to optimize functionality in a small Parisian two-story flat

A suspended metal staircase employed as a space-saving solution in a tiny Paris apartment

Space-saving seems to be the key concept to any Paris-based renovation project. With this in mind, Les Ateliers Tristan & Sagitta have devised custom-made cabinet systems and a modular, light metal staircase to fit this tiny apartment with private garden located in the XVII arrondissement in Paris.

A growing family requires more space. The apartment needed an extension, so the owners decided to connect the ground with the building’s first floor. How to integrate a staircase without occupying too much space? Parisian studio Les Ateliers Tristan & Sagitta offered a simple, prefab space-, time- and budget saving solution.

The white metal-framed staircase outline a simple geometric composition on the living’s wall, reminiscent of the typical plain decorations of Parisian apartments.

The living is composed of one single room featuring three huge glass doors opening onto the inner garden and custom-made furnished wall units. The lounge and kitchen areas constitute an open, seamless space, though visually separated by the skillful juxtaposition of different materials and colors: the kitchen walls and flooring have been painted a bright green, while the lounge is white with a typically Parisian parquet flooring.

This stylish play of contrasts is also visible in the upstairs kids’ bedroom. Space is divided into two separate areas marked by clearly different materials and colors – a rather ephemeral distinction that allows the two siblings to define their respective territories.

Just like in the majority of Parisian Haussmannian-style homes, even here are to be found original features such as solid wood door moldings, brass doorknobs, frames and stucco rosettes on the ceilings. The renovation works have maintained these decorative elements, matching them to modern details such as the kitchen and corridor’s custom-made furniture which further emphasize the flat’s mixed, contemporary style.
