    What a beautiful design of space! The central piece is ingenious! The creation of spaces of light and of privacy – brilliantly done! This is a very talented architect and a smart owner to find someone like that to create such a beautiful space!

    I love it. I can’t figure out where the bathroom is, but it looks like a great place.

      It’s inside the middle portion. The door is right before you go up the steps. There’s a video of this home on youtube. Very nice place indeed!

      The French don’t need bathrooms.

      I’ve seen this one in Kirsten Dirksen has done a short film about it showing the house inside. You can find it in youtube or on the site. The bathroom is inside the cube. Loved it!

    Nothing about this article makes any sense. “Converted parking garage”? As opposed to a lounging garage or a driving garage? What else is a garage used for? And DAMN that’s a big garage. Of course you can convert 600 sq feet into an apartment. Show us how to do it with a standard two-car garage and then I’ll be impressed.

      You may also take your car to a garage to get it fixed by a mechanic. Thus, parking.

      Huh. Someone’s cranky. This is one of the most beautiful conversions I’ve seen.
