NBA All Star Boston Celtic Paul Pierce asks Cortney and Robert to take what used to be an old storage room at his high school alma mater Inglewood High and transform it into a state of the art student-athlete lounge as part of his Truth on Health foundation to help fight childhood obesity. Basketball and children's health are close to Robert and Cortney's heart, so they dive into the project with local designer Suzanne Kisbye tearing up the beat up linoleum floors and turning them into parquee floors, ala the infamous Boston Garden. They mix flea market finds with high end modern furniture and a high design colorful lighting cluster creating an urban loft inside a high school. The biggest transformation is covering huge 20 foot high window security gates with banner-like photographic window treatments from hip hop photographer and cultural observer Chi Modu's. Paul Pierce and his celebrity friends celebrate the finished space as part of the 2011 NBA All Star Weekend in Los Angeles.
