Project Year: 2006
Cost: N/AThis design explores how the activities of everyday life can be made poetic and joyful through responsive and adaptable architecture.
The initial concept of a jewellery box has been expanded in the careful design of the details so that the space can breathe and alter through the pushing and pulling, sliding and shifting, opening and closing of individual elements. Rather than the occupier moving from one room to another in order to carry out different tasks the space adjusts to accommodate his or her changing needs.
