The MentalScope focuses on a person’s mental health by utilizing the position of the window, while accommodating necessary activities with transformational qualities; all while allowing for personalization by utilizing telescoping tactic and level changing.
Part of human nature is to feel more stable when connected to the outdoors, which is why the MentalScope’s big opening and the relationship it has towards everything inside is so significant. Everything inside has been made as transparent as possible in order to allow natural light to occupy the space. Scientist have proven that clutter does affect human psychology negatively, which is why the main design focuses on organization throughout the space. As much as organization is important, self-expression is important as well; the apartment has the bare necessities of millwork in order to allow for personalization. As time evolves, people become more busy with only so many things to be able to accomplish in a day. This apartment is designed to accommodate a person’s basic needs for their daily lives and allow for transformation for other activities. The arrival, eating, and hygiene area have transformational aspects to ensure maximum use of the space to avoid clutter. The entertaining, leisure, and sleeping area has three states. One state is when the beds are completely tucked away as close to the ceiling possible, for the occasional entertainment. The second state is when the bed can be used as a loft above the entertainment and leisure area. The third state is when the bed drops down as much as possible, allowing for sleeping to dominate over all other activities.
