This flat in Paris has been renovated in order to allow for a double nature to co-exist: from a three rooms flat, the apartment can be easily transformed into a completely open space where all the functions merge. This flexibility allows the clients, a dogs loving couple, to work at home during the year and to host their son, daughters, grandchildrens and their pets for short periods of time. All the service areas are concentrated around the existing duct shaft while the rest of the space is freed up or can be subdivided through integrated sliding walls. The use of a wooden floor underlines the continuity of the interior.
