Here’s how she changes the whole apartment by sliding a little on the wall
Living compact can be a challenge in itself. One must have space for not only their things and everything that requires storage where you live but also to live and live, and as much as practical and comfortable as possible.
Needed more space
According to the design and architecture site, Dieen was just a need for more space and better and more practical solutions that made the Spanish designer Yolanda Pila contact the architects of PKMN Architectures.
Pila had recently inherited and moved into his grandmother’s little house in a residential area north of Madrid, and needed expert assistance to make the home work for herself and accommodate all the things she had with her on the move.
– The house was rather compact and had a very traditional design, explains architect David Pérez at PKMN Architectures to Klik Bolig.
– The most important thing for the client was to get a home that would enable her to not only work efficiently from home, but where she could also meet friends and family, entertain guests and not At least have enough space for all the things she wanted.
The solution became All In Own House.
To make room for both home and office, as well as all of the assets, the architects came up with the unique solution of creating three large removable modules in the middle of the apartment, which serves as industrial storage shelves. These are attached to the ceiling and can be pushed around to create more or less space in the various zones of the home, as well as providing ample and convenient storage.
– In just seconds, the client can now change the entire layout of his home, “explains Pérez..
– She can choose from many variations in the location and orientation of these modules, thus having absolute flexibility when it comes to the way to live and stay in their home.
It’s not all the reason to be able to “rebuild” their entire house by just pushing the wall, but this house owner can now.
The house changes throughout the day
All In Own House is not only specially designed to accommodate all of its own things and possessions, but is also designed to change throughout the day – in keeping with Pila’s daily rhythm, tasks and plans.
– The interior of the home is undoubtedly characterized by the owner’s assets, explains the architect.
– But the objects are not silent, they are moving, like the owner himself. The things, the rooms, move around and with her when she uses and is in the home and as she goes through her day.
In the morning, the bedroom changes when the bed is turned up and the wall is moved to make more room to get to and from the bathroom and the shower. While when Pila is going to have a meeting with clients at home, it only takes a quick turnaround, and the kitchen has turned into both meeting rooms and home office.
– Movement is the key here, confirms Pérez.
– There is movement and change that makes this property the one that allows the house to have the opportunity to follow the owner throughout the day and adapt to her wishes and needs.
Hides kitchen, bedrooms and storage in the walls
To make the house more user-friendly and flexible, and to make use of what was available in space, it was determined that there were kitchens, bedrooms and storage that would be hidden inside the moving veneer modules.
The whole project is basically about finding storage for personal belongings and how storage and display of these can have a lot to mean for the experience of the entire home, explains the architect of the magazine Dezeen.
– It’s the variety of different rooms and zones are unique. You have infinite many homes inside a single little house.
The three major modules are not only attached to rails in the roof but also on wheels so they are easy to move on and move around.
– The modules can be moved back and forth along one side of the room, explains the architect.
– These can either be viewed and used alone and freely, or with the other modules to give the home owner a flexible and multifunctional home.
The first module contains the kitchen of the house, where there is plenty of storage and a bench space.
– On the other side of the wall, ready for use when it’s time to meet customers at home, you’ll find a big blackboard.
Module number 2 contains bookshelves and a folding bed, while the last of the removable modules have even more storage in the form of shelves, as well as wardrobes on the other side of the wall, which in turn helps shape the bathroom.
– Flexible panels help ensure that you can have privacy in each and every one of the zones.
– See the hotels
Interior Architect MNIL Trond Ramsøskar says that you should look for smart solutions when building tight.
– As expensive as the square meter has become today, it’s extra important to get smart solutions in small apartments. The typical thing is that you take a large apartment and scale it down when planning, but it does not always work. Instead, one should be inspired by how the hotels get to add many features into one room, he says.
At the same time, do not let the apartments become too complicated and technical, so everyday will be a waste. I have grown up with a sofa bed, and it became a hurry to turn it up and together every morning and evening. It can be fun for a while to transform the apartment and move around on walls and cabinets, but what everyday is it? It’s like living in an Ivar shelf where the shelves can be taken in and out everyday.
– I’ve seen apartments that look amazing, but can not help thinking about all the work behind it changing rooms from one usage to another.
In small apartments it is also important to plan the rooms so that they are nice and cozy to live in.
– Avoid white cabinets and walls. Instead, you can break up with different colors, shapes and objects. Norwegians are generally a little afraid to decorate rooms, but both art and decorative objects have the advantage that they can attach to them. The smaller the apartment, the more important the objects are, “says Ramsøskar.
Affordable and strong
The interior of the compact house in Spain now largely dominates the veneer slabs and the color these naturally have.
– The reason we chose this as material was for several reasons, explains Pérez.
– Firstly, such thick veneer plates are very strong and withstand much weight and are also tough for scratches and damage. In addition, it’s cheap to buy and made it possible for us to comply with the rather tight budget.
The architect explains that they also have a love for the material itself and that the client also felt that this would be the right one for her home.
– The texture and heat veneer tiles add to the interior are beautiful as a contrast to the otherwise smooth white surfaces.
The wood is also used as floor in the other half of the dwelling, to create a match between the two parts.
