Pop Up, Disassemblable Room Lets Small Apartments Grow Inside

Argentine architect Diego Arraigada did the blog rounds some time ago for his stunning view house, but we're hooked with this smaller, more personal project.

Faced with the challenge of designing a room for a new born child in a small apartment, the architect came up with a structure half way between a piece of furniture and architecture called Room House.

Only four sq. meters big, the intervention is constructed with recycled wood plaques. Its parts are strategically designed to be able to put them in an elevator, and the whole thing is assembled without glue or screws, sitting on the floor with no need for a special kind of basement or construction.

The wooden plaques allow different types of permeability in 'walls': blind ones to allow some privacy and open ones to let natural light in, depending on the chosen configuration.

Although thought for an infant, the structure can be used for any kind of purpose in apartments that need a new, transitory division, and as mentioned in the title it can be completely disassembled when not needed anymore (kids leaving home, for example).
