In this post I’m showing you a 129 sq. ft. micro apartment in Paris with kitchen, bed and bath.
And how this woman re-created the space to meet her needs in this tiny space (granted she is an architect).
But when you go inside into the living room the bed rolls right out of wall and if you roll it out only half way you can use it as a couch.
After you enjoy the photo tour, video tour, interview, and discussion below I’d like to ask you to join our discussion in the comments (would you rather live in tiny house in your favorite rural setting or a micro apartment in your favorite city?)
How This Woman Went Tiny in a Paris Micro Apartment
All of the pillows and everything you need to make the bed are stored in wall cabinets right by the roll out bed.
So essentially your living room transforms into your bedroom whenever you’d like. But it gets even more interesting…
This same multi-functional furniture unit is also the kitchen when you walk around the other side (directly above where the bed is hidden).
The micro kitchen has everything you need:
- Kitchen sink.
- Microwave oven.
- And storage space.
And as you’d imagine there’s a really unique (and very small) bathroom as well.

Would You Live in a Micro Apartment Like This One?
My question to you is, would you consider living in a micro apartment if it were expertly designed like this one? Just curious.
Micro Studios/Apartments City Version of Tiny House Living, Right?
Because to me, micro apartments like these are much like tiny house living but in the city instead. The biggest benefit here is that you have access to a city all the time.
Pros/Cons of Tiny Housing on your own Land Versus Studio City Living
But the downfall is that even in a small space like this if you’re in a desirable city, you’re likely going to pay much more for rent (or cash/mortgage) than you would with a self built tiny home on your own land.
Which Way Would You Go? Tiny House or Tiny Apartment in the City? Or Both?
So which way would you go? Tiny house living in a somewhat rural setting? Or micro apartment living in the city? And why?
Let us know in the comments. If you ask me, I like both of those ideas so much, that I’d like to have both eventually.
A tiny house in the woods. And a micro apartment in the city. What do you think of that idea?
