Tech Farm: accessible & space saving housing solution

Reference number
Coordinator REINVENT AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 300 000
Project duration January 2018 - November 2018
Status Completed
Venture Accessible design

Purpose and goal

The purpose of the preliminary study was to investigate the conditions for making the innovative "sleeping modules" in our coliving housing solution available to people with disabilities. We have looked at regulations, obstacles and how other actors have approached these type of questions. The goals are met: - Increased knowledge about prerequisites, regulations. - Inspiration/good examples. - Identifying experts. - A comprehensive project plan. - Identified and requested a project team. We also offer solutions for available sleeping modules.

Expected results and effects

We have a solution to an available sleeping module of 14.5 square meters. We have also found a solution with four pods where three are more surface efficient and one available where the cut for all pods is as low as 10.5 sqm per person. If we take the four pods in the modular solution and terminate as one apartment and not as four, we meet all the requirements of the regulations. Features, such as disabled facilities, are available in common areas. The cost of this variant is 900,000 SEK.

Planned approach and implementation

We have collaborated with our partners and have gone through different phases to reach a solution. We have collaborated during workshops and also had a dialogue with our contact at Boverket. Through our new knowledge, we have begun to develop innovative available solutions with the users. In the future we want to test these in our reality lab.
