A Separation, explores a blurred boundary of outdoors and indoors. The client, a fashion label designer requested a separation from living space and their studio / gallery. Another request was to have a large event space to host their runway shows and events. Uncontaminated private space is only on the second floor. The first floor acts as a semi-public space. During large events, the main house’s glass walls slide back opening the living room to join with the exterior landscape, tying both Studio & House together.
