The Finnish Avanto Architects realised this highly flexible house for a single person up to a two family household in Espoo / Finland.

“This bachelor’s house adapts to different situations in resident’s life: movable partitions can be used to form closed rooms in otherwise wide open space. The one room loft can easily be transformed into a five room family apartment. A side apartment for a grandmother, a teenager or a disabled person can be separated from the ground floor. Even part of the intermediate floor can be opened.”

“The space is divided into the closed dark grey serving space and the open flexible space. The border between inside and outside fades when the double doors of the glass façade are opened.

The load bearing structure as well as the base floor, the intermediate floor and the roof construction are of steel. The external cladding is of dark grey brick forming a back wall. The solid mass defines clearly the urban situation in the corner of three streets.”
