Design Concept

The major goal was to remodel the existing frame to better utilize the spaces within. The 40ft x 22ft living room with less than 9ft height presented the biggest challenge of masking the disproportionate dimensions. Our solution was to create "soft walls" in the form of furniture units with large cutouts that provide the required separation, while creating a lack of visual obstacles, and thus a sense of free flow.



Unique Features

The house also features smart technology: all electronics can be operated by mobile devices, and a single click allows the clients to completely alter the experience as per the mood, be it the mood for party or the need for a tranquil space.
