What does coin bureau mean in a French real estate advertisement?


In French real estate advertisements you may have already seen the term ‘coin cuisine’ and this refers to a little kitchen squeezed into the corner of a room. Most likely in a studio apartment where there is not enough room for a full or even medium sized kitchen.

‘Coin Bureau’ can be translated to mean a ‘corner office’ but I am guessing it is highly unlikely the French real estate term is referring to an executive corner office with a view over the city. It may refer to a small space in the corner of the living room in a French home or apartment perhaps with some wall shelves and a built in desk. Best go see or ask the agent or owner over the phone to explain.
