The furniture is modular, simple and flexible – it’s made from local pinewood and designed to accommodate several people and make them feel at home.

The high, translucent walls let sunshine in while maintaining some privacy, and they have been used to shelter several plants that provide home owners with food while bringing nature inside.

The top floor offers fantastic views of the old city of Copenhagen and its monuments, which are best appreciated from a space specially designed for relaxation and contemplation.

    Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any suggestions for inexperienced blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    Shipping containers maybe, but yikes all that plastic!? An interesting idea done badly!

    Just a small correction here – the HomeLessHome container is a project from Erik Juul Architects – http://www.erikjuul.com while the IKEA home at Højbro Plads was a different installation next to the one from Erik Juul. So this container structure you see on the pictures is NOT made in cooperation with IKEA ;)

    I would totally live in a place like this, though it might get a bit drafty…and it might be hard to keep the bugs out at night…
