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.”
