As cities become even more packed with people and structures, it also becomes increasingly more challenging for designers and builders to make do with small spaces and create space where needed.

Students at TU Delft in the Netherlands have come up with their own solution to the space challenges of urban living. The Pop-Up Interactive Apartment is a 50-square meter apartment with sliding walls that home owners can move and shift around to create rooms or space as they need them.



The movable walls slide through rails carved in the floor and can be hidden away inside the walls when not in use. The owners can play around with the configuration of their apartment by sliding out the walls they need. They can pull out walls and create rooms for sleeping at night or hide away the walls to create a larger space for a dinner party. The wall panels are made of polypropylene and can be curled, folded or bent to serve the user’s purposes.



Watch this video demo of how the pop-up apartment can be configured to fit the home owner’s needs.
