An articulating screen separates the entry from the open plan living spaces beyond, channeling light and playing with a decorative pattern that changes as the screen is opened or closed.

On the ground floor, a concrete bench and custom wooden niches house the clients’ media center, art, and guitars—while concealing ductwork and mechanical elements.
