Red Nest: Bookcase, Bed & Desk by Paul Coudamy

Red Nest: Bookcase, Bed & Desk by Paul Coudamy

The upper level of this small Parisian apartment was transformed by architect Paul Coudamy. Known for his custom solutions for small spaces, the architect made the most of the 23 square meters with a sliding bookshelf, bed and desk unit. The bookshelf slides to expose the bed to the room and hide the desk — or to expose the desk and wrap the bed in a little nook.

The efficient use of space and plentiful storage cabinets and drawers negates the need for much more furniture, allowing the small room to appear quite large and open.

Red must be a favorite of Paul Coudamy — the high-gloss red cabinetry here is almost the same color as the red clay-like wall in his My Caravan Studio project.

You can see more of this space — and the interesting use of 2-way mirrors for privacy in the small bathroom — at Dezeen | Red Nest by Paul Coudamy.
