When the Spanish designer Yolanda moved to the house that used to belong to her grandmother, she got help from the architectural firm PKMN upgrading the rather small single storey house
Through a carefully made design, totally custom-made, and the combination of carpentry and the use of quite a simple industrial railing system, all the server space in the house is arranged through three wooden, suspended, mobile and transformable containers. This server space can be totally re arranged in just a few seconds, thus allowing, in a variety of combinations with served space, to adapt the whole house according to specific needs for the use of space at the time, enabling infinite homes within a house.
The house that’s called “The All I Own House” has a stationary kitchen with a fold-down table attached to one of the mobile shelving units.
OSB was chosen as material because it’s cheap and sturdy
The house is divided into to parts: an open and a full space, that contain all of the owner’s belongings.
And the space is transformed into a room, where Yolanda can meet with clients.
The second shelving unit contains a Murphy bed
The beautiful bathroom is also stationary. The mosaic tiles are from the Spanish company Mosaic del Sur
