IKEA Innovation Center Space10 and EFFEKT Studio presented a system of residential modules and premises for sharing.

The presentation was held on June 4 at the conference “Days of Democratic Design” at IKEA headquarters in Sweden.

The solution allows you to make housing cheaper. In addition to rooms and apartments in such houses, there will be common areas: a kindergarten, dining rooms, workplaces. Access to these and other services will be provided by subscription. Options can be managed through the application.

The rent will cover electricity, water, heating, maintenance and other utilities. Real estate can be bought in property shares. Advance payments are not needed, the rent will remain low.

With the emergence of new needs, residents will not have to move. They will be able to adapt housing for themselves, for example, to expand living space or swap apartments with neighbors.

Buildings offer to build from cross-laminated wood, as built the tallest wooden building in the world.

Modules can be packaged in a flat package, as well as furniture from IKEA, which allows you to quickly deploy buildings. The system has unlimited scalability. As required, residents can replace any items. The building itself can also be modified or refurbished.

It is assumed that the construction will be funded by a long-term partnership with pension funds and municipalities.
