To grow your favorite herbs and vegetables you don’t need much space or lots of work – it just takes some seeds, soil, water, and love!

When you are constantly on the move, you need a mobile home – however in most cases a cargo bike will do.

Stop home-sick feelings by bringing your favorite objects inside your two-wheeler: books, some clothes, a coffee maker, a plant, and you dog’s portrait.

This two-in-one exhibition at this year’s fantastic, human-orientated Copenhagen Design Week showed design-minded and curious passersby by that we can live with less – and actually, that we probably have much more than what we need.

    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…
