the semi-narrow, rectangular interior is defined by three folded-wall objects created specifically for the space.  their shapes sub-divide the overall expanse into smaller, consecutive areas; each of which is used for a different purpose.

included regions are: an entrance, lounge, garden/product display room, reception and staircase to mezzanine, office/conference chamber, kitchen and toilet.

seeing how the showroom is for a door company, centor’s products play a heavy role throughout. doors are placed in four distinct places, and work in tandem with folded-walls to both separate and connect different zones.

the entrance area is equipped with comfortable furnishings, presenting visitors with a homey atmosphere from the moment they step inside.


moving further in to the ‘heart’ of the showroom is the small interior garden and main product display. low profile chairs, as well as three removable flower pots, enable quick rearrangement of the informal gathering place and its exhibited merchandise.

a reception desk is clearly visible from the green space, which was deliberately located to form a constant visual connection between cantor employees and customers.

the desk itself is another custom element that ties in visually with all other components. its distinct two level composition allows for computer work at one end, and standing-level communication for the rest.

above the reception is a large window that looks into the mezzanine level. this area, which is accessed via a perforated white stairwell to the left, is the technical part of the office.

though more private then the rest of the space, the window provides enough connection to make it cohesive with the whole.


on the ground floor, the office and conference room are accompanied by a kitchen and bathroom. depending on the occasion, a large cantor door and sliding wall element can open or close of the meeting area.

all walls are clad with various finishes, typically with opposite sides representing either interior or exterior. the showroom as a whole is a well-designed space that is suited for all business activities, all the while providing a continuous, subtle display of centor’s products.
