»Swiss knife« Apartment

Year/Location: 2007/Ljubljana

Type: Studio Apartment/35m2

Architects: Rok Žgalin Kobe, Ana Vrhovec


This small apartment does not have enough room to function normally and still appear spacious. It has to have everything in one room: a kitchen, living room, and a bedroom. They are all there, just not visible at the same time. The design is based on movable walls and parts of furniture, which can be folded and pulled out or entirely removed from sight. Depending on the time of day, the apartment configuration and the lighting can be transformed into three completely different environments.
