Floating Cube Apartment

Posted on March 11, 2012 at 7:15 AM

Here is a soaring example of small space creativity from Parisian architects Emmanuel Combarel Dominique Marrec. This airy-looking 50 m² dwelling used to be an artist studio with an awkward two-level layout. One of the main challenges in this project was to fit an independent bedroom into a limited space. The task has lead to an ingenioussolution – creating a floating cube in the middle of the room. This floatingsleeping island became a focal point of the interior, dividing the floor plan into functional zones without interfering with the flow. The suspended box is made of a metallic structure covered with wooden panels and painted in white to match the rest of the apartment. I love how it truncates the view to both lower and upper levels and creates privacy while preserving openness of the space.
