Swedish studio Tengbom Architects has designed a modular residence for students which is economical, ecological and intelligent in terms of both design and choice of materials. This research project in the future of living, implemented in collaboration with students at Lund University, has a kitchen, a bathroom, a sleeping loft and even a little garden with a patio. The most amazing thing is that all this fits into just 10m²: a special permit was required to build it, as the minimum legal size of a residential unit is 25m².
Use of cross-laminated wood as a construction material cuts in half not only the unit’s environmental impact and carbon emissions, but the rent too!
The first prototype of the project was displayed at Virserum Art Museum in Sweden, and this year the first 22 homes will be completed and ready for university students to move in.
