Live/Work Apartment by Kariouk Architecture

We're always interested in how people integrate workspace into their homes, so when we spotted this live/work apartment renovation on the Slow Home, we were intrigued. Kariouk Architecture combined two 600-square-foot apartments into one big space, fitting storage pieces and desks with casters so that furniture can be easily rearranged to accommodate the homeowners' changing needs…

Almost everything in the apartment is exposed rather than hidden, including the glass-walled bathroom (fitted with blinds for privacy). Movable, linen-backed glass screens act as room dividers.

Both Kariouk Architecture and the "4D Apartment Renovation" are located in Ontario, Canada. The space has been featured in Canadian House & Home, Canadian Architect, and other publications. For more information, see Kariouk's site and the Slow Home's article.
