“Rather than trying to fit the furniture into the apartment, we decided to fit the apartment into the furniture,” says architect Antoine Santiard of H2O Architectes. “However absurd [the concept] may seem, it immediately alleviated all the constraints linked to laying out tight spaces.”

The wool curtain dividing the space was crafted by Arpin, a local company, while the featured custom track is by G-Rail.
