When it comes to IKEA, look that comes to mind should be:
It looks like this:
However, if I want to bring in this IKEA that has just been put into operation today, it will definitely ruin your perception. It looks like this:
This shelf-like building is IKEA Westbahnhof store in Vienna, Austria. The whole building seems to be made up of countless little grids.
The roof is an open park covered with green plants.
Solar awnings are installed on all four sides, which is environmentally friendly and energy-saving.
The facade of building looks like a shelf with green plants.
But don't worry about strong winds blowing these plants away because they're already secured with screws.
Pedestrians can walk under it without worrying about falling objects. This design is very well thought out.
The main color of interior is also white, and you can get ultimate viewing experience by taking zigzag elevator up.
Floor-to-ceiling windows provide ample natural light to interior, keeping it clean and bright wherever it is placed.
Single color furniture and a simple layout are usual IKEA style.
Since this is a seven-story building, given need for soundproofing, top two floors are used as living quarters. Here painting style suddenly changes.
Because guest house is positioned as a youth hostel, interior design is dominated by contrasting colors.
Guests can choose from single or multi-bed rooms. Likewise, every room has large floor-to-ceiling windows for viewing.
