OSB bathroom

studioMERZ realized an (extra) bathroom in a merged apartment. The existing kitchen and a wall were removed and replaced by an OSB object: the new bathroom. The object fills the niche and gives it a new function. When the residents move and the apartments are seperated again, the bathroom can easily be removed and replaced by a kitchen.

This is in line with the design principle of studioMERZ: permanent impermanence. OSB is not a logical choice as a building material for a bathroom, but carefully treated it enhances the image of a temporary object.
