We are currently preparing the launch of our first full-scale prototype in the harbour of Sundsvall. The prototype is an accommodation suited to a collective lifestyle, which is a common state for our students and young professionals today.

In an effort to maximize the property's functionality and aesthetics, we have constructed parts of the prototype in a studio environment, where tests and evaluation occurred before the decision-making together with the intended target audience. One of the parts where these steps recently have been applied was in the creation of a bedroom prototype.

Multi-functional, fixed interior was built into the bedroom prototype to test the functionality, as well as storage space. The idea of the fixtures and fittings are for instance to make it easier for students when moving, avoiding chaos and keeping a clean space. Other studies carried out were the placement of lighting and electrical outlets to suit the target group's needs and lifestyle.

The testing will be continued in the full-scale prototype in the harbour of Sundsvall - version 1.0.
