PKMN Architectures modified the interior of a single-storey flat to create a home and work space for local designer Yolanda Pila, in a project called All I Own House. The small apartment is situated in a housing estate in the north of Madrid and formerly belonged to the client’s grandmother.
To maximise the functionality of the restricted space, the kitchen, bedroom and storage are housed within a series of moveable units made from heavily textured oriented strand board (OSB) – a material made from layers of compressed wood flakes.
Positioned next to the bathroom in the corner of the apartment when fully closed, the storage units contain a fold-out bed, work surfaces and shelves.
Mounted on casters and ceiling tracks, the wooden storage blocks can be moved along one side of the apartment with a floor made of patterned tiles. The three components are separated or grouped to serve a variety of functions.
