Affordable housing for students on a budget is often hard to come by. tengbom architects have proposed a 10 sqm student unit in response–accessible, environmentally friendly, and smart in its design and material choices. in developing the compact space, the swedish firm worked with members of its target group, university of lund students, to conceive a sleeping-loft, kitchen, bathroom and small garden with a patio within 10 sqm, reducing the current requirements of 25 sqm by 60% through legal consent, but is still comfortable for its inhabitants.
