A 1:10 scale model of the CASA OJALÁ, a patented project by Architect Beatrice Bonzanigo (IB Studio), will be hosted at the Post Design Gallery / Memphis, in the heart of the Brera district, together with the exhibition’ Memphis + Post Design: a selection in 5 rooms’.
Casa OJALÁ is a small house (27 sqm) offering multiple interior solutions working in synchrony without ever changing the original structure and shape.
Casa OJALÁ is installed through a mechanical system composed of ropes, pulleys and cranks.
The flexibility of the space is made possible thanks to the innovative solution of sliding walls, in Wood-Skin and fabric, which are rolled up on posts placed at the edge of the circumference and in the center of the structure.
Casa OJALÁ #1 has two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with a single bed, a bathroom, a terrace, a kitchenette and a living room, which can be continuously transformed into one another or become a large outdoor platform.
The small housing unit – wich is completely removable and transportable – does not need any external assistance, neither human nor technological: it includes a rainwater collection system, it can be equipped with solar energy and is integrated by a small biological pit.
Conceived as a support pavilion for hotels that want to offer new housing solutions without facing a real construction site to expand, Casa OJALÁ can be installed anywhere, on any type of terrain.
