'Cairos Architecture' recently added a mezzanine level to a small Parisian apartment in order to give the residents more living space. In dense urban areas such as Paris, residents are often forced to work within a limited amount of space. These architects devised a clever solution for a family that needed a bit of extra room.

The family home is a fifth floor property located in Paris' 12th arrondissement. In order to give the owners space for their two small children, the architects decided to add a mezzanine level to the existing home. Completing this task involved converting unused attic space into side-by-side bedrooms for each child. These rooms both open up to a new mezzanine that extends down into the living room.

The projects demonstrates how architects can use mezzanines to add additional space to existing properties.
