Unveiled at the Sia Guest International Hospitality Exhibition [5], Bungalove is a mobile living space that can evolve over time and is designed for disassembly. The pop-up hotel consists of a platform and decorated walls that can serve as a single room or unfold into an entire small apartment. The fully customizable habitat is based on a flexible building system that can create everything from a simple village to a luxury resort.

Even though Bungalove is a temporary space designed for a temporary stay, it features good quality, long-lasting Italian design through and through. The space is equipped with high-end furniture and creamy unbleached textiles by Casamania [7] and Frezza [8], as well as energy [9]-efficient Danese Milano [10] illumination, decorative locally-sourced wooden panels by Gizia [11], and stylish bathroom fittings by Agape [12]. The interior flooring is composed of flexible modules that are extremely long-lasting and maintenance-free. For the exterior flooring the architects chose to trade typical wooden planks for a blend of recomposed stone and concrete by Listotech.

The Bungalove was inspired by the fantastic living cells and pods [13] of the late 60s that sought to create compact and efficient living environments. Florence-based Studio 63 designed the pop-up prefab to encourage people to go back to the wild in style – at least for a short while.
