The assignment: to address the spatial configuration issuesthat diminishes the occupation degree per m2 for a 100m2apartment.To solve this; one first has to realize why we have the need for differentliving spaces, according to us this can be boiled down to two things. First the need for privacy and second having the items one needs to perform an activity at the right place due to cognition.

Our analysis of a 100 m2 apartment has resulted in an approach which states that if the issues concerning privacy and the allocation of activity supporting attributes for four persons inhabiting a 50m2spaceare solvable, it would be attainable for three, two or one persons as well.

From this understanding a solution could be derived by getting rid of unused space while simultaneously allowing the users to have the items and privacythey need to perform an activity when the need to perform this activity arises.

The notion of eliminating unused space calls for a certain amount of flexibility because a larger apartment would allow all of these functionalities at once. We intend to achieve this flexibility by making pop-up furniture part of the walls, floor and ceiling. Whilst this furniture pops up when a certain activity needs to take place, it also opens up storage that is related to this activity.

We have to take in consideration that our initial analysis of a larger apartment has changed by making the space more flexible it might have overlapping activities.Two activities that require the same amount of space but different furnishings and attributes cannot take place at the same place at the same time. Therefore the spaces for more communal activities (kitchen and living room) are surrounding the spaces that support activities that require more seclusion, these spaces can merge with the spaces next to it making space either grow or shrink within the apartment. This flexibility ensures that communal rooms have enough space to comfortably fit its inhabitants or when necessary, there are enough separate spaces to allow activities to take place next to each other. The merging or seclusion of spaces is achieved by opening or closing foldable separation walls.

The apartment communicates with smart devices; it keeps track of the users’location as well as it enables users to provide input concerning their need to perform an activity. The apartment will then propose a given set of possibilities and communicate this through visualizations and/or augmented reality. Next the user will be able to specify his or her preference. Because the apartment stores its current data and history in the cloud it will be able to determine a possible configuration when a user is approaching the house when no preference has been submitted, however this is optional.
