Sustainable homes should be designed so that they can easily transform as the families that reside in them grow and change over time. Architect, Diego Arraigada, has designed a hybrid between a piece of furniture and a room, Room House, to help aid with this transormation. The Room House can be constructed without glue or screws to provide a new privacy space within any preexisting room, and can easily disassemble when no longer needed.
Diego Arraigada designed Room House as a solution to the need for a new baby's room within a small apartment, without creating any permanent walls. It's made of recycled wood plaques and is designed as sort of a 'flat pack' system, so that it can fit inside an elevator for easy transport and assembled anywhere without added foundation or supports. The piece is designed so that some sides of the cube have open slats to allow light in, while other sides are opaque for privacy.
