BoKlok (Live Smart)

Did you know that Ikea makes homes? BoKlok is a partnership between Ikea and Skanska, one of the world's leading construction companies. In 1997, the two companies combined in order to provide quality low-cost housing throughout Scandanavia. In 2006, they expanded into the UK. Over the last decade they have garnered numerous design and social accolades for their projects and initiatives. I wonder how long it will be until they expand to the USA?

  1. Love what you are doing and hope you come to Canada soon. One comment - you might consider subtly varying the exterior colour of each abutting row house, sort of a muted spectrum/variety, so as to give each home a bit more individual identity while still retaining the over all architectural organization-what do you think?
