Micro-living Student Pad

A comfortable sleeping-loft, study area, kitchen, and bathroom ingeniously packed into ten square metres! This innovative design by architects Linda Camara and Pontus Aqvist at Tengbom Architects is also stylish, affordable and environmentally friendly. The architects teamed up with wood manufacturer, Martinsons, to meet the needs of students at the University of Lund, Sweden.  They've created an eco-friendly, low carbon footprint unit which is elegant and practical.

"What is “good” living? What materials can we use? To meet the future in a sustainable way we must be innovative in all aspects and have the courage to break new ground," says Linda Camara at Tengbom Architects.

Currently displayed in Virserum Art Museum until 8 December 2013. In 2014, 22 units will be built and ready for university students to move into.

Units are built with a carbon positive cross-laminated wood which was sourced locally, has a reduced ecological impact and low carbon footprint.
