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
A sequence of boxes of different sizes that are attached and moved across. The boxes open to one side and close to the opposite side in order to show or hide their content. These different boxes slide on each other while being however internally connected. The different uses inside are visually independent but there is still a continuity between them. The lower boxes host the more private uses of the dwelling, such as the bedroom, the dressing room and the bathroom, while the higher ones host the more public uses, such as the living room, the dining room and the kitchen
Together the organization and expression of the building address the realities and difficulties of modern living in the city and as such attempts to redefine the typology of the urban townhouse.
