Rooms in the ancient Japanese architecture were open and flexible in use. Based on the activity of the moment they could be transformed by using; screens, curtains and furniture. The objects formed the basis of the space and determined its purpose, form and scale. In this sense objects become mediators between spaces, secluding one from the other. The idea of seclusion became the inspiration for a bookcase from which a separate space can be created from the closet itself; for reading, writing and working. The aim of the space is to create an environment that embraces and allows us to focus and close off.
