We wouldn't have ever thunk it, but French designers Bold Design actually transformed this teensy rooftop machine room into their new office! Instead of immersing themselves in debt in order to rent a swanky spot at ground level, William Boujon and Julien Benayoun chose the top of an old building in the center of Paris for the location of their new headquarters. Unafraid to work together in close quarters, and constrained by a small budget, the duo now have an attractive workspace with a great view.
