As the renovation progressed, his home evolved into a space that was suitable not only to work in, but also to entertain friends and host meetings for The Writers Bloc, a group of esteemed playwrights.

He eschewed “white walls” as the perfect “space enlarger” color, and instead chose “lumot green,” a grayish green shade that is surprisingly refreshing.
