Paris is a bit like New York in that it's a highly sought after, densely packed city where some of the most desirable real estate is in older buildings, full of apartments with charming historic character and not-so-charming historic floorplans. This is the story of how Parisian architect Pierre Petit took a small apartment with a cramped, unworkable floorplan and turned it into a lovely, light, and spacious home.
