Flexible Living

In order to maximise the use of various spaces, Boundary Space use both architecture and interior design to create spaces that allow multiple uses or allow the use to evolve with the time of day and the seasons. The images above are taken from a space that is normally open living for family and friends, but can become more enclosed for intimate dinners and to screen off caterers at parties.

Kitchens often require this kind of flexibility, where they are gathering spaces for family and friends, but also have to be discrete and practical for big events.

Storage plays a key role in creating flexible spaces and being able to hide all the necessary paraphernalia of modern living is critical to creating calm and inviting spaces without visual clutter.

Flexible should also be Practical

Panelling, jib doors and other clever design features can be used to temporarily conceal the more mundane, but essential spaces such as laundries, stores and plant areas. An atmospheric and dramatic wine store at the end of a hall can be the secret entrance into a clean, simple and practical laundry space.
