On the bare walls of the main communal space are two large grey wall panels arranged like abstract modern art. These panels can be slid open to reveal an entertainment center and a portal to the bedroom of the resident fashion designer. These whimsical features add sense of surprise, dynamism, flexibility and interaction that defies the conventional boundaries of a traditional room. Coupled with the dining table, the designer can extend their work surface between the two rooms. This tone of playful concealment can be found behind the grey wall which houses storage closets, pantry, and the powder room. The objects of daily life are treated with care, each has their specific place in the residence. This sensitive gesture allows the main communal areas to be uncluttered and free as a meditative haven
