This free-standing wall contains a bit of hidden engineering- a pull-out door floats and visually carries the horizontal lines of the built-in display and storage system through the room. Mirror wall, with detailed construction out of fir and a minimal, balanced design, references the aesthetic elements of enclosed gardens and harmonizes the space with the surrounding stripes of black bamboo visible outside.
clockwise from top left: The framed square shape of mirror wall and the parallel lines of the floating pocket door bring an order to this space which balances the optic effect of a large mirror; detail of the side grain visible on the door slats, the other side of the mirror wall is set with extra plywood panels from the ceiling; the door aligns flush when in the closed position; the door when open is on a line with matching views of black bamboo through a window and glass doors.
