Where form meets function

If you think about the logical next step for the Swedish home-everything retailer, IKEA, it would certainly be selling homes based around the IKEA systems of kitchen and home appliances. Ideabox was appointed to work with IKEA’s Portland Design on the new line of houses. The first house in the line, activ is completely tailored around IKEA appliances and flooring. The aktiv house is a compact 745sq/ft (69 sq/m) home with one bedroom and one bathroom.

“We designed the layout, and our clients can select the colors. IKEA appliances offer state-of-the-art cooking, so we included an induction cooktop and convection oven. A counter depth refrigerator keeps food fresh, and cabinet faced dishwashers provide seamless functionality.”

Ideabox worked in many modern components of house design including energy efficiency into the plans.
