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.
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.
“Through a carefully made design, the combination of carpentry and the use of quite a simple industrial railing system, all the space in the house is arranged through three wooden, suspended, mobile and transformable containers.”

A fantastic sliding unit that creates the use of space that the architects needed. The large-scale units, which according to the architects take design cues from industrial storage systems, are intended to improve the layout of the compact living space.
