Didomestic by Elii:

“The scope of the venture covers from the development of a customised functional proposal for a user that is turning a new leaf to the rehabilitation of the structure, the insulation, the facilities and the modernisation of the existing development methods.

The picked method removes all obstacles from the floor to provide the best achievable versatility. 2 standard elements are employed: firstly, the central core, comprising the staircase, some shelves and the larder. The core is at the centre of the principal space beneath the mansard roof. It connects the access floor and the room underneath the roof and enables the natural lighting coming through the roof into the living room. Secondly, there are 2 side strips for the functional factors (kitchen, bathroom, storage area and domestic appliances).

This standard arrangement is complemented by 2 strategies that give flexibility to the domestic spaces. First of all, the moving panels that are integrated into the core and run along manual rails. These panels can be used to generate diverse arrangements, this kind of as including an additional room for a guest, separating the kitchen from the residing space location or opening the total floor for a party. The panels have transparent sections so that the all-natural lighting coming by way of the mansard roof can attain this room.

Secondly, the secret trap doors that are integrated into the ceiling of the access floor and into the floor of the mezzanine and that property the rest of the domestic functions. The ceiling doors are opened with handles fitted on the walls. These handles actuate pulleys that reduce component of the furniture (this kind of as tables and the picnic benches, a swing or the hammock) or some complementary functions and objects (this kind of as the disco ball, the supporters to chill out on the hammock or an extra shelf for the guest space). In addition, the floor of the area underneath the roof has a series of invisible doors that can be opened to alter the functionality of the raised space exactly where the bedroom spot is (these spaces residence the dressing table, the tea area and the storage spaces for the bathroom).

All these aspects are integrated inside of the floor and the ceiling and they appear and disappear at the user’s whim. The secret trap doors and the sliding panels complement the standard configuration, fit the wants of the moment and provide different house layout combinations.”
