One of the most unusual pop-up apartments has just made its mark in the world.

Sitting some 50m above the ground on the first floor of the Eiffel Tower and boasting spectacular views of Paris, the temporary home designed by French architect Benoit Leleu was unveiled last Friday (June 10), after taking just two days to be built.

Sounds hasty?

The 2,000 sq ft apartment - bigger than some jumbo HDB flats in Singapore - comes complete with a living area, a kitchen, two bedrooms and even an urban greenhouse, all of which feature stylish furnishings by Italian design company Lago.

Four lucky winners of a contest by vacation rental company HomeAway will get to bring up to five guests to stay there for one night each.

When they are not using it, the living quarters will be used to host Euro 2016-related events.

The apartment was created to last till the end of the month-long football tournament, of which HomeAway is a sponsor.
