IKEA Just Released Free Instructions For A Spectacular Sustainable Garden

The Growroom, an indoor garden designed by Space10 and supported by IKEA, has officially been open-sourced


It’s made with nothing more than plywood and screws

The building instructions have been made available completely free online, and are relatively simple

The pavilion is ‘sliced’ to provide optimal light and water flow for the weeks worth of herbs and vegetables it’s capable of growing…

And also to create a serene shelter for anyone who steps inside

According to Space10, The Growroom is “an urban farm pavilion that looks into how cities can feed themselves…”


“The original version of The Growroom sparked interest and people requested to either buy or exhibit [it]…”

“But it doesn’t make sense to promote local food production and then start shipping it across oceans and continents”

“That is why we now release The Growroom as open source design and encourage people to build their own”

The innovative structure was tailored by architects Mads-Ulrik Husum and Sine Lindholm, pictured here
