The project contributes to contemporary design practice by exhibiting both an awareness of contemporary interior design trends and a willingness to reject those trends if an alternate material, form or object presented itself as more appropriate for the project
The project uses materials that reference a variety of eras of design while taking advantage of contemporary construction techniques to apply those materials to contemporary forms.
The project eschews the current trend for 'surface indestructibility' and uses materials that have a surface characteristic that will allow them to mature in character over time.
