Final design

Popuplogo.jpg For the last decades, cities have become bigger, more diverse and denser. Citizens are asked to live in tinier houses, while demanding larger spaces and greater variety.

The pop-up apartment project is a response to this challenge. Occupying a space of only 50M2 in an existing building, it is aimed to reach the qualities of a much bigger apartment.

The goal is achieved by the creation of an interactive environment consisting of folding panels. Made out of polypropylene, the panels are able to fold and bend while remaining their structural strength. While sliding over rails, the panels are able to pop up into walls, chairs, beds or desk.

Like with a Swiss pocketknife, only the desired shapes are being folded out, while the others stay razor-thin in the existing walls. Therefore, a high variety of different spatial configurations is possible, creating only the spaces which are needed at a certain time. Bedrooms are not needed during the day, and can be transformed into a working space or large living room. The pop-up apartment allows to live in a continuously changing space, real-time tailored to the wishes of the future user.

Apart from the digital design, we were able to create a physical 1:1 interactive prototype of a part of the apartment.
