Architect Matthieu Torres and his partner were looking for an affordable place to live in Paris, but all they could find was a dingy, dated apartment. Yet, they saw the potential!
They removed the walls and drop ceiling, added skylights and a bathroom, and created a spacious kitchen where they could cook together. His girlfriend’s family worktable has become a perfect spot for entertaining.
Enjoy the video tour and stunning before and after below!

Affordable Renovation of 344sqft Paris Apartment
This is what the couple was starting with.
The space was oddly cut up by walls.
And the ceilings were low with few windows.
By taking out the ceiling, they added vertical square footage.
Leaving the exposed beams added lots of character.
French pine plywood was used for all the cabinets.
The plywood blocks the bedroom from view during the day.
They went with all-white tiles in the bathroom.
