The project focuses on the rented apartment as the site of intervention. The inserts are conceptualized for collective living in roommate situations. In a space that an occupant cannot structurally and spatially alter, and where there may be a necessity to combine the work and living space, this project proposes a catalogue of customized hybrid inserts which function between gadget, furniture, and room. Scenarios for individual performance are molded to create the customized forms and spaces of each insert. Each variation of the insert has two primary hybridized functions, the first is a specific program depending on the person’s behavior and interests and the second is the context of sleeping.
There are two types of inserts with set agendas but flexible options. The first line is for collecting, organizing, and displaying physical objects such as a library, an electrical field for plugging and using electronics, and an exhibition space for gadgets and entertainment-appliances. The second line is for creating atmospheric environments including tactile surfaces. These give importance to the exterior in terms of formal identity. In the interior the inserts house compartments for inserting material textures, lighting devices. Two of these inserts are inflatable occupancies, which are completely flexible in terms of being able to rapidly collapse and be transported.
