Ideal Double Standard

‘Ideal Double Standard’ is a theoretical proposal for a transformable dwelling in a context of row- or terrace- houses. A folding party wall permits built-in furniture on castors to be positioned either in the middle of a space or else against a wall, transforming degrees of separation, privacy, and usability of domestic space for different purposes and permitting a compact dwelling to use its space more efficiently and flexibly.
