Interior spaces responds to the folds and creases of the Erdos Cashmere. We were inspired to float the garments on Display with metal supports which mirroring the material quality observed in the cashmere. At angles they disappear, others they are visible adding to the changing forms of folds in clothes. We used Erdos traditional pigment a bold-red to contrast with the cream wall.

3 conjoined Precast GRC Curved Walls defend an exterior with weight and heft, qualities that are often observed in masonry stone construction from a distant past. Each of the 3 marks a boundary, One encloses an exterior potted garden and springs to form an arched revealing a Front Door. Another rises from the interior staircase. The last hangs from the Soffit softening the corners of the plot. A Fracture can be observed splitting the Masonry walls. This crack creeps along the perimeter façade, during the day a shadow, at night it aluminates.
