Arsenal Flat

arsenal-flat-7


Renovated from an old Haussmannian building in Paris, the Arsenal Flat by h2o Architects is a truly unique approach to space-efficient housing.


Once the space of ancient servant’s bedrooms, the top-floor apartment is now home to a family of four, with a separate room for each child, kitchen, bath, and stunning balcony views.
