Inspired by an old set of traveling trunks, TallerDE2 Arquitectos employed 54 modular divider units made from recycled OSB boards and custom-built space saving furniture to transform a small and ordinary apartment into a unique and spacious bachelor pad. The architects' clever space-saving redesign gave an additional 27 percent of usable floor space, making the lucky homeowner very happy with his new pad.
The first thing the architects did for this pop-up house designed for a thirty-something bachelor, was remove all of the dividing walls, fittings and fixtures. Then they divided the space efficiently using the freestanding modular OSB units.
Each room was designed for a particular purpose, for instant instead of a standard bathroom, there is a small toilet and shower next to a freestanding unit with a sink and a mirror. Other units feature fold-down pieces that reveal cupboards, wardrobes and hidden appliances like a microwave and a TV.
