Ikea flat-pack houses come to Glasgow

Ikea is building 100 "flat-pack" BoKlok homes in Glasgow:

The company will build up to 100 easy-to-assemble homes in Drumchapel as part of the area's £100m renaissance.

Glasgow City Council yesterday chose a consortium, which includes Ikea, as preferred developer for the Drumchapel new neighbourhood project, which is hoped to transform the area on the city's western fringe.

The prefab BoKlok homes, which roughly translated means smart living, are hugely successful in Scandinavia and are lauded for their flexible open-plan layout, high ceilings and large windows.
