This small apartment in France features a cube, suspended from the ceiling that divides the open plan and acts as a bedroom. The odd, bi-level studio space was re-designed by architects Emmanuel Combarel Dominique Marrec. The new suspended cube (which only is connected to the ceiling) helps ease the transition between the low living space and the mezzanine that supports areas for a kitchen, dining and bathroom.

The suspended box is made of a metal structure covered with wooden panels. The cube — as well as the floor, the walls and the ceiling, has been painted with a white polyurethane resin.

And the all-over white helps unite the apartment into a single space with mulitple zones. You can see even more pictures at ArchDaily: Valentin apartment / ECDM.
