The project is an exploration of minimizing furniture and squeezing space with the key words: expanding, folding and multi-purpose which reveals Hong Kong living culture.

The Sliding partitions are invisible and the sons’ rooms are merged while an open space is needed for gathering dinner, party, or enjoying movie. And the private zones can be set up for the brothers as individual room. The expandable dining table, folding chairs, folding beds, and multi-purpose panel (in bedroom and washroom for handing and pinning) reveal the spirit of minimizing spatial quantity which is commonly seen in Hong Kong.
