The M9D4 Apartments by Architectures Anne Démians focus on the separation of urban and domestic spaces.

This concept is most explicitly expressed with the patterned metal sheeting that encases the structure. “The metal needed to be worked in a domestic way, which is why I tried to create a sort of net curtain, with perforations on a human scale, at the height residents look out,” says architect Anne Démians.

M9D4 Apartments by Architectures Anne Démians designed approach to filtering space gives a sleek look that allows residents of the complex to comfortably inhabit with the privacy they so desire.
