The old adage “necessity is the mother of invention” is never more appropriate than when trying to design a beautiful home in an extremely tiny space. Paris-based Batiik Studio managed to create a spectacular home out of just 118 square feet by outfitting the entire space with transforming furniture.

Batiik’s Marie Josephine apartment is the epitome of space-saving architecture and design. In the kitchen, most everything of use is hidden behind a minimalist fa├žade. The fridge and oven are hidden behind a retro flexible wall, and the countertops and cabinet doors swivel open to reveal hidden storage. Seating is also covert – a cobalt blue table folds down flat when not in use.

The compact studio certainly befits from Batiik’s minimalist design approach. Neutral colors keep the space light and airy, and beautiful archways add character to the apartment while delineating spaces. A loveseat couch doubles as a fold-out bed, and a small table pulls double duty as nightstand and coffee table. An invisible closet is hidden behind another arch.
