Small studio apartment uses see-through shelving as an elegant partition wall

When a 26-year-old man purchased a Parisian studio apartment in Asnieres, he was at a loss with what to do with it. All the man knew was that he had a mere 25m2 to work with and that he wanted a full-sized bed he didn’t have to move or hide during the day. Knowing the layout had to be “just so,” he hired Margaux Meza and Carla Lopez from Transition Interior Design who would know how to take care of his needs.

They created a sleeping area by reducing the living space to 13m2. However, instead of putting in a wall to separate it, they preserved light with a full storage wall.
