The Smart Student Unit is an Inexpensive Option

The Smart Student Unit may just be the solution to over-crowding for those who live in residences.

Swedish company Tengbom has created a compact home that has all the features of luxury accommodations. The entire home is 108 square feet, and is made entirely out of locally sourced materials. The inside has a bed, study area and a full kitchen and bath. Many items in the home work as two separate features, as an example the tables also act as blinds for the windows.

The walls are thick enough to keep both the cold and heat out. The Smart Student Unit was designed to offer a cheaper, and more space-conscious alternative to current options. This project has been very successful so far, and this could be the future of student housing.
