Anytime the folks over at Faircompanies publish a video I get excited because they’ve always got something new, exciting and interesting to share when it comes to living big in tiny spaces. Today I’m showing you a video tour of a small business in Paris who turned a rooftop elevator engine room into an amazing little office workspace that doubles for leisure, too.

It’s a 183 square foot space that had been completely ignored and unused for years since the elevator engine was removed years ago from the room. Once they discovered this space they started to get even more creative and started designing, gutting and building the space.

Today it’s an incredible little space that offers so much in terms of storage, sleeping, and workspace. Since this little 183 sq. ft. space is rooftop on a building they’re lucky enough to have plenty of ‘underground’ storage. This means they’re able to hide a lot of stuff out of sight. And they were also able to create some nifty little features that anyone might enjoy. Like the sofa bed that’s unveiled directly from the floor!

This little room often times has three or four people actively working in it- and sometimes even five or six- so there’s a flip up desk, whiteboard, and another large desk so that there’s functional space for the entire team (see more below):

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…

I thought you’d also like this tiny house on a foundation in Paris, France.

To me, it just goes to show how you can design and build tiny in so many ways other than on wheels (see our small houses, tiny cabins and apartment categories).

I’d like to see more and more homes like these being designed and built for people all over the world who prefer not to over-house themselves.

As soon as you walk in through the front door you’re immediately greeted by the living room and corner kitchen.
