Flexible Lego Apartment
2013, Eindhoven (NL)
The project questions the way separate rooms in a shared flat relate to each-other. In most cases every rented room has a private function, leaving little room for communal space in the apartment. The flexible Lego apartment offers a multifunctional room, that can serve both as a private room and a communal space. The furniture is replaced by building blocks, so the inhabitants can alter the room to suit to the social situation. This way social connection in the shared flat is improved, without sacrificing any rentable space.The apartment was inhabited from fall 2013 until summer 2014.
