Your two-room apartment has unfortunately no access to a vegetable garden? No problem: a Danish design studio has now designed the indoor green space "The Growroom" in cooperation with IKEA. The guide is free.
An excursion into the green is for us always great time with a certain - mainly time-related effort. Spoiled are the ones, which can simply slump to the rear door just barefoot in the direction of roller-bars. Even better, only those who can plant and harvest their own Lollo rosso and Radi behind the house. The Prenzlberger's organic heart hits twice as fast, does not it? Even on roofs, "Urban Farming" has been spreading for quite some time, and it spills over the city in many places.
Now the Danish Design Lab Space 10 moves the cultivation even inside. With the support of IKEA, the architects Mads-Ulrik Husum and Sine Lindholm have developed the "Growroom". The wooden pavilion is walkable and can be stocked with all sorts of herbs, fruits or vegetables. The design is optimized so that light and water reach the plants perfectly - almost with a green thumb guarantee!
While there is now via IKEA no ready-made building set, but the instructions for "The Grow Room" can the network be accessed free of charge. With a little talent, leisure and time, everyone should be able to grow coriander, tomato & co.
