How is and where is the spectacular sustainable store that Ikea opened

The Swedish ready-to-assemble furniture company, which conquered all the markets in which it landed in the world, opened a store that changes the most well-known traditional image of Ikea, with its gigantic blue and yellow windows. It is the shopping mall that Ikea opened in Vienna, Austria. Located near the Westbahnhof railway station, in the Austrian capital, the megastore is distributed over seven floors. Sustainability is its most distinctive feature: it has a green facade, full of plants and pots, and its structure in the form of stacked boxes, designed by Querkraft Architekten. In addition, the seven-story structure that looks like a huge DIY shelf, also has a terrace that is open to the public, a cafeteria and a hostel with 345 beds.Ikea opens a super store in Vienna.

It is one of the most important measures in the green island strategy in the city of Vienna. “Trees provide cooling and humidity, a natural and passive air conditioning strategy. The air temperature at pedestrian level will also improve with these measures”, explain the designers. The Swedish company has 400 stores in 50 markets and now aims to develop in South America with Chile as its kick.The terrace with a privileged view of the city of ViennaThe terrace with a privileged view of the city of ViennaPRESS querkraft architektenIn December 2021, the brand announced that it will stop using plastic packaging by 2025.
