Abstract [en]

In the recent years around the world there has been a constant increase in the number of students who apply to continue their studies at a higher level, this in turn has brought a great demand in the occupation for student housing. Finding a place to live is one of the issues that new students have to face when moving into another city or country, which can be really challenging at times.

The project speculates with a design concept that may help the demands for student housing in the city of Växjö, Sweden. The idea is a housing unit for one person that occupies a space of 13 m2 with an interior space of 10 m2 so it can be moved with a truck to the place where required for a temporary time.

The interior proposes an efficient, flexible and comfortable space for the needs in the everyday life of a student. This is done with an organize layout and some multi-purpose furniture that can also be retractable when not in use to save space.
