Cell adopt to prevent these hydrophobic residues

Suppose an aqueous cellular protein has a “patch” of mostly hydrophobic residues on one portion of its surface. What simple strategy might the cell adopt to prevent these hydrophobic residues from being exposed to the solvent? Assuming that changing the conformation of the protein monomer is energetically disallowed.
