Compact Living:: ‘All I Own House’ in Madrid by PKMN architectures

The Spanish architecture studio PKMN architectures has modified the interior of a small single-storey house in the north of Madrid, owned by a Spanish graphic designer, art director, and founder of the ERREPILA studio, Yolanda R. Pila. Inside the house, the architects designed the movable furniture system that allowed rearranging the internal space in few seconds in accordance with constantly changing Yolanda’s needs.

PKMN architectures: ‘All I Own House materialises the interior of Yolanda’s house through her personal belongings. But these objects, such as Yolanda, would never stand still, they move around with her, accompanying her way through the day.’

The movable furniture system includes three modules: a dressing module, a bed/office module with a double bed, and a kitchen module. The total storage volume of all three modules is 11.27 cubic meters (398 cubic feet). These modules are made of oriented strand boards (OSB) and suspended from the ceiling on a quite simple industrial railing system. Moving the modules, Yolanda can rearrange the space, revealing one or more of the following areas: a kitchen, a studio, a bedroom, and a dressing room.
