The Pop-Up House by Taller DE2


To new social behaviors appear new residential needs demanded by users who are far from traditional. In addition to addressing this change we have a problem of the plurality of raised solutions derived from the individuality of each inhabitant.

Taller DE2 solves this equation by an exercise in deconstruction: removing partitions traditional housing and housing proposing from scratch, based on a catalog of 54 modules that consist of each of the elements in a home.



In this way, housing is not made from a composition of enclosed spaces (bathroom, kitchen, bedroom …) but from each element to be useful in it (sofa, bed, wardrobe, sink …).

The result is a large number of requirements adapted to the particular solutions. Where only fixed elements as connections or downspouts determine the positioning and deployment of the other elements; that can be folded or folded back providing flexibility to use the same space.

The design of the furniture is also pop-up, so it folds and unfolds, enabling use each furniture element only in the moments when they are needed, and hiding and protecting them in case of be used spaces, in that is, for other uses more public or to claim its space.
