More commonly, small spaces are deemed challenging to design but it also goes the same for large ones. While it allows more freedom for extensive design, furniture variety, and décor experimentation, the large floor area and space—if not maximized—can present empty and neglected areas. This was the problem for homeowner Marcie and her high-rise condominium—much of the space was going to waste because they weren’t being “lived in.”

After some planning with designer Grace Reyes, who did Marcie’s original interiors, the condominium was renovated to utilize every square inch of the large space. After shifting a few key areas in the floor plan, not only was Marcie able to maximize the space but she was able to create areas to make home life more comfortable for every member of her household, including her staff. To make sure all rooms in the house were visited and used, instead of putting up concrete walls, she made use of glass ones to make each one inviting. After adding the last personal touches to every space, like color and décor, Marcie is satisfied that her investment was not going to waste.
