In the “Urban Village Project”, SPACE10 investigates how the houses and districts of the future can be designed to make a sustain-able lifestyle easier. Sustainability is built into everyday life through solutions like local food production, renewable energy and shared spaces across generations.
SPACE10 is IKEA’s external research and design laboratory in Copenhagen analyses changes, identifies pressing challenges and designs innovative solutions for the future. SPACE10 wants to explore subjects from the accelerating urbanisation and scarcity of natural resources to loneliness in major cities, food safety and an increasingly exclusive housing market. Research and design solutions are shared openly.
