Ikea To Build 100 Flat-Pak Houses in Glasgow

Previously, we noted Ikea's entry into the building world with their affordable, prefab BoKlok homes (which roughly translated means smart living). BoKlok homes are hugely successful in Scandinavia and are lauded for their flexible open-plan layout, high ceilings and large windows. Now there's news that Ikea will build up to 100 BoKlok homes in Glasgow as part of the area's renaissance. The Glasgow City Council chose a consortium, which includes Ikea, as preferred developer for the Drumchapel new neighbourhood project, which is hoped to transform the area. :: The Herald
