Made of little more than timber and polycarbonate, The Plongeoir is designed for the simple, reflective life – like a modern day Walden hut [1] that can be moved as need be. The major difference of course is that SPRAY Architecture [2] encourages people to paint on the outside and inside, to claim this space as their own creative hub.

As such, the wallpaper is always changing. The wooden lattice and transparent polycarbonate facade provide enough privacy without completely shutting off the beautiful outdoors. Called Graffitecture [3], the art, according to the designers, actually extends the architecture. And we kind of like it.
