Kitoko Studio architects in France have decided to take this old “maid room” in Paris and redesign it into a transforming 86 sq. ft. micro apartment studio.

Normally spaces such as these are so small that people end up using them as storage spaces but with some smart design concepts it has been turned into a nice and affordable living space in France’s capital.

Sliding doors and cabinets reveal a sleeping loft, storage spaces, a pullout staircase, a wardrobe, dining table, and more. Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!

It has two bedrooms, one bathroom and can sleep up to four people comfortably.

Inside you’ll find hidden storage areas, sliding walls, raised wooden floors, and more.

An office area is available by pulling out part of a wall which gives you a functional desk.

This small apartment is available for sale as I write this for an asking price of 650,000 euros. It’s also currently available as a vacation rental. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below.

Right now I’m showing you these 3-in-1 transforming/expanding shipping container shelters designed and built by MSS.

The units are easy to ship since they’re the size of a shipping container so you can have it moved just about anywhere pretty easily.

Once you have it on site and deployed you’re able to triple the size of the unit in just a few minutes. This isn’t necessary for most of us, but I think it’s fun and worth taking a look. Watch the videos below to see how it works. Enjoy!

When Bill Southworth of Hybrid Propulsion began traveling with his Rottweiler he was unhappy with where he had to end up staying. That’s why he ended up creating the 80 sq. ft. transforming cargo trailer stealth tiny house I’m showing you right now.

His options before designing and building this unique little cabin on wheels was to stay at motels that were rather unpleasant or high end dog-friendly hotels that were way too expensive. After looking at most of the travel trailer options out there, he was also unhappy with how large, ugly, inefficient, and awfully constructed they were.

Inspired by Graham Hill’s transforming apartment in NYC, he set his mind on creating a way to build his own hotel on wheels. And that’s how this beautiful 16′ Haulmark cargo trailer turned modern micro cabin on wheels was born.

Graham Hill, founder of Tree Hugger and now founder of Life Edited is selling his 420 sq. ft. transforming NYC micro apartment called the LE1. You might remember my original post on it way back. (UPDATE: SOLD)

If you haven’t seen this apartment in action before, I think you’re in for a real treat. If you’re interested in purchasing it, beware because it’s not cheap (we’re talking about NYC here).

Either way I mostly wanted to show it off to you so you can see what’s really possible in small space when you have money to spare and the creative willingness to step outside of the box.
