See the large top windows? They belong to an Atelier d'artiste (artist studio), that is a place dedicated to painters. You can find many of those in Paris, because until recently (until 1940, let's say), architects would always save some space on the top floor - on the north side, to avoid the sunlight reflexion - for artist studios. Now, because of the price of housing, all these studios have been turned into apartments. This one, for instance, located on the Ile de la Cité, must be totally priceless!
