Here’s a YouTube channel that I’ve followed for years that consistently puts out interesting features around architecture – design, alternate building, green buildings, tiny house movement, and everything in between. In this feature (running time: 7 minutes), Filmmaker and Documentarian, Kirsten Dirksen showcases a miniature bachelor pad or as the French say, garçonnière nicknamed “The Dollhouse”.
It comes with all the “little” essentials such as a washing machine, refrigerator, dishwasher, and oven. As Jaen-Malo explains, everything is custom and nothing is standard, which includes the bed that was cut to fit into the small bedroom upstairs.
Once a storage space for a flower shop, homeowner Jean-Malo spent time and money converting it into a very compact and livable space allowing him to be on the doorsteps of downtown Paris (Pigalle).
It’s practical enough to make for a comfortable home and reflects the owner’s rustic and modern style. And if you’re ever thinking about a trip to Paris, this little space is available on AirBnb for rent $140 CAD ($108 USD) per night.
Enjoy and be sure to subscribe to Kirsten’s channel for other great stories.
