PKMN [pacman] Architectures

Don't expect to remain quiet in such a home.

The domestic space is a projection for the inner being: the way we shape our houses reveals a lot about who we are and what we desire. The "All I Own House" was designed by PKMN architects as a custom-made dress for its inhabitant, Yolanda, who actively participated in the design process expressing a neat brief for the house. The result is a very peculiar space that demands an active participation on the part of the owner.

The house is a small universe that encloses all of Yolanda's belongings in a space designed both for living and working. Three wooden, suspended and mobile containers can be arranged in a series of possible combinations, thus adapting the space to the owner's specific needs: infinite homes exist within a single house.

The relationship between the inhabitant and the space is very intimate and the video is a perfect medium to fully express it: Yolanda acts in space, the house adapts its form to her needs, a new situation is created.
