We are living in a fast track world, where technology increasingly dictates our way of life. With technology progressing faster than ever and infiltrating our jobs and homes, we are forced to adapt to this way of life in order to keep up with out ever-changing world.

Light and shadows, scale, vertical and horizontal movement, sound control, temperature and color influence the quality of a space. Space is transformed by means of layers, material finishes, and movement sequences to name a few. fter all, is not the act of transforming something, also discovering that which was always there?
