Society is transforming.
Transformation can mean dynamics, communication, ubiquity, but also displacement, denial of identity.
The very concept of "home" is no longer due to the traditional model, synonymous of permanence and stability. The contemporary house can easily become a "temporary" residence, the emblem of mobility that characterizes our era.
Nowadays, the design of living space becomes the design of temporality and flexibility, the need of easy and rapid changements, it raises the question of recognition of the diversity of living and the different interactions that the space is able to establish with the items with you report, while at the same time to affirm the presence of the individual in a context. The house, however, tend to better represent the identity of the person who lives with his habits, his propensities innovative, its creative capacity.
Comfort and welfare housing, were by definition associated with a high lifestyle, remains the core of design, without, however, these involve the obligation to unsustainable costs. With the thinning of human activities, the distinction between work time and home time is becoming less clear. They become styles of life. The new space for living changes over time and takes different functions as do its work and present it to others. The paradigm of computing and communication make it technologically advanced. There are no longer clear boundaries between public and private space that help define a unified framework for living.
“3080” ( from 30 to 80 square metre) follow the need of recovering unused space in historical center working in the daily life and allowing a continuous and flexible changing based on user needs.
This is a recovering for residential use of a groundfloor of about 30 sm covered by a vault, located on the ground floor of an anciet XVIII cent building, in the resort of Isola del Liri (FR) Italy.
The room, which over the years has undergone various transformations and shrinkage, is currently used as a warehouse and it has its only entrance on a blind alley that is only used by the houses facing on it.
In "3080" the common "typology" loses its meaning as hierarchies between spaces and functions are no longer able to adhere to any stereotype imaginable: the home is tailor-made suit, personal accessories, customizable, practical and wear with ease.
The project provides a “4 funcional boxes“ : service, living, work station, garden ,of about 200x110 cm, displaced side by side, on the bottom wall.
By the use of bearings roller, every box can be moved, a part from the service (kitchen + toilette) to combine different usage of the 20 square metre free space, following user needs.
A further possibility is left to the user: the garden box, can be placed outside, to interact in the private blind alley and provide new temporary spaces and functions to the ancient typology.
