Living in dorms or looking for affordable housing for kids who are off to college can be a problem but let us just focus on the environmental conditions that could (or should) be tied up with them when given the opportunity.
Apparently Tengbom Architects has a neat idea on that notion with these ecofriendly Student Flats which are also affordable. Using smart materials to produce the ideal student flat made for students, each of them measures about 10 square meters (108 square feet).
Cross-laminated wood is used to render carbon positive qualities – flats which will be used by students over at the University of Lund in Sweden.
The compact flat offers a sleeping loft, kitchen, bathroom, and a small garden with a patio. Of course there is a desk area where they can study. But the real credit goes to the cross laminated wood material which allowed the flat to be 50% more cheaper.
