Tengbom Architects created a cheap and environment-friendly micro-home for students at the University of Lund.
The student micro-home was based on the “smart student unit” that Swedish housing company AF Bostäder tested out a few years ago. The unit was barely ten square meters in size. Tengbom redesigned the unit based on feedback from students.
The redesigned smart student unit includes amenities like a sleeping area, a kitchen, and even a patio, but the redesign and materials used make the rental rates for the unit 50% lower than standard rates.
