This dollhouse, for design and hand-made for Bloomberry family is loosely based on the idea of the cabinet of curiosities. From the outside, when closed, it has the iconic house form of a seemingly simple box with a pitched roof. However, the box is unusually hinged and opens to reveal the interior, with spaces not otherwise immediately apparent. One opens the house to reveal secret places and the evocative world of its small inhabitants. Each room has a unique character and atmosphere. Kaleidoscopic bits of color and light shine through the roof and floor, offering small peaks into adjacent rooms.
The design displays a few clues as to its inhabitants, their lives, tastes, and ancestral history, but leaves much to be imagined. The house hopes to occupy not only a new physical space but also a place within the imagination.
