Smart student units is an affordable, environmental-friendly and smart both in terms of design and choice of materials, designed by Tengbom Architects collaboration with wood manufacturer Martinsons and real estate company AF Bostäder. A student unit of only 10 square meters is currently exhibited at the Virserum Art Museum in the county Småland, Sweden. The area in each unit is reduced from current requirement, 25 square meters to 10 square meters through legal consent. This truly compact-living flat still offers a comfortable sleeping-loft, kitchen, bathroom and a small garden with a patio. Through an efficient layout and the use of cross laminated wood as a construction material the rent is reduced by 50 % and the ecological impact and carbon footprints is also significantly reduced.
