Design Firm Adapts Childhood Homes For Unemployed Young Adults
The studio has unveiled three prototypes of transformed living spaces for people forced to move back in with their families
Spanish architecture and design studio PKMN Architectures, now known as Enorme Studio, has unveiled a project that aims to address one of the consequences of rampant unemployment in Spain: namely, young adults who can’t find work and are moving back in with their families in droves.
The unemployment rate in Spain for those ages 25 to 40 has topped 50 percent, according to news reports. The studio’s Home Back Home project, which debuted at this year’s Oslo Architecture Triennale, a festival in Norway, features furniture that is geared toward making childhood living spaces feasible for these full-grown adults.
