Reducing the space to its skeleton, Gurney had very clever ideas to rebuild walls with interesting shapes, giving him the opportunity to camouflage columns and technical utilities like air conditioning units. Playing with forms, the architect mixed circles and squares, making the space more playful and dynamic. From the entrance, where vases from Contemporaria Washington are on display, one can see through the open shelves the beginning of the living room as if looking through a window in the wall.

Gurney used a variety of materials — such as aluminum walls in the bedroom enveloping a flat screen television — to reinforce the modernity of the space. Colors — both serene and bright — are everywhere. Mahogany wood and red painted walls were easily mixed with deep blue surfaces, reinforcing the coziness of the apartment.
