‘a living room in public space’
The Urban Living Room is a living room consisting of contemporary Dutch Design. A design that focuses on hospitality and small-scale meetings in the big city.It’s a social design which brings a temporary welcoming place to the urban environment. There, people can meet in a homely setting.
The Urban Living Room travels from place to place,city to city. There it There it will add a contrasting layer to the local environment. The bright uni-color and the indoor homely feeling of the Urban Living Room make it stand out in urban landscapes, parks, in nature and exhibition spaces.
Meet, play and enjoy
The Urban Living Room is a social meeting place. That’s why all kinds of small scale activities are programmed. For instance, you can play board games, listen to (kids) story telling and enjoy live music from local musicians.
With the advancing urbanization and increasing economic interests, there’s a lot of pressure on public space. We design a public living room as a temporary social intervention. An intervention in public space where people can meet and enjoy. The Urban Living Room shows convincingly to whom the public space of the city belongs to: the people. Residents of the city get a temporary meeting place as a social statement.
The world urbanizes rapidly. People live closer together
and cities keep on expanding. How to hold a bond with the city that is changing so rapidly? The large scale of the city demands the opposite: a home. Feeling at home is a special feeling. By putting a living room setting in an unexpected place, we create an opportunity for that home feeling. With this project we want to explore that feeling. Important in the development of a city are the contacts between people, especially on a cultural and social level. The Urban Living Room is a prime example of encouraging this.
