First Mansion was Otto’s home when LAAB first started. Otto has always been interested in the fundamental of space. Instead of creating spaces using walls, he explored the notion of “form follows time” where a space had no fixed definition but constantly changing states based on activities. For example, a bedroom can be transformed into a movie theatre; a movie theatre can be converted into a game room; a game room can become a meeting room. To create a transformable home, one has to understand oneself and plan ahead to design the furniture and built-in systems accordingly. For instance, magnetic paint was used to allow pin-ups on the wall for the meeting mode. Projectors and screens were also embedded in the wall and cabinet to allow conversion to movie theatre mode.
