The Luxuriously Appointed Gentlewoman's Working Apartment is a series of 'building blocks' for an artist's lifestyle.

Each block was measured, titled and catalogued.

The project sought to create an environment which compartmentalised the tasks of a working artist.









“See how many a pretty thing

 I always from a cube can bring:

      Chair and sofa, bench and table

 Desk to write on when I’m able,

All the household furniture,

 Even baby’s bed I’m sure;

 Not a few such things I see;

Stove and sideboard here can be.

  Many things, both old and new,

My dear cube brings into view;

    So my cube much pleases me,

  Because through it so much I see.”
