The Family Home in 322 square feet ? IKEA has a solution
Urbanists try to sell us on living in small spaces. Here is a home for a family of four in 322 square feet designed by Ikea.
I have a love-hate affair with IKEA. I love their innovation and modern, accessible design. I hate the disposable consumerism and cheap chipboard furniture with no soul. Plan Bay Area aspires to transform the suburbs into small apartment living in high density complexes through a combination of government funding, upzoning and a ban on new single family home development.
Is this the American Dream you aspire to? Probably not if you are among the 85% of Americans that prefer privacy, space and nature afforded in suburban, single family living.
