It’s safe to say I’m obsessed with this building. It looks like just another Parisian building from the front (albeit somewhat unique with the red brick), but then you turn the corner and it’s like someone cut it right down the middle with a steak knife. Of course, a giant mural graces the back wall and on the side, the building’s very own space invader. I imagine a corner bedroom in such a structure might be rather uncomfortable, but Parisian apartments are all about challenging your level of comfort. Like so much else in Paris, it’s both beautiful and perplexing.

Woah! That’s so weird yet interesting! I guess it’s safe to say the building was not originally built like that. Any history on this building? Very cool.
Thank you for reading! I tried to find a history of the building online but to no avail. My guess is that the building is not that old–probably 19th century sometime. No idea why it was built like that though. I will keep looking!
