In search of an affordable home in Paris, architect Matthieu Torres and his partner picked out a small, dark space with a beautiful view of Paris city. Completely gutting the neglected apartment allowed them to add a previously missing toilet and shower, as well as introduce a mezzanine level by removing the aging ceiling. In turn they were able to elevate the home's bedroom and install a large furniture unit to contain the added bathroom, a wardrobe and a large amount of storage. The French ply used in the unit continues throughout the apartment, uniting the home through its plywood features while the exposed ceiling gives the apartment a spacious, airy feeling.
