“STELLA 8.40” en Concurso de Ideas
The purpose of this tender is the construction of 142 housing units for young people in Seville, in the area surrounding the former San Bernardo station. Empresa Pública de Suelo de Andalucía, the developer of the project, will retain ownership of the building, a small percentage of whose dwellings will be rented to senior citizens for an indefinite period of time, and the majority will be rented to young people for a modest fee for a maximum period of three years. Taking into account the great variability and diversity of occupants that the rental system will produce and that each apartment can have a maximum of 50m2, we propose each unit as a single space that can be easily transformed by its occupants through a system of mobile furniture distributors. Four cabinets are articulated with each other and can be rotated and moved to obtain the different possibilities of compartmentalization of the dwelling. A constellation of anchor points in the floor mark all the possibilities with placement, which are developed from a single point. The result is a tailor-made home, with 50 m2 distributed à la carte, where the individual and his or her circumstances will be the ones to build a temporary home.
