Dorte Mandrup has designed a city centre IKEA store with a public rooftop park that will act as a “green lounge” for Copenhagen, Denmark.
Scheduled to open in the Vesterbro neighbourhood in 2023, the store will be easily accessible by foot or by bike and topped with a tree-lined roof.
Commenters are impressed – one said the design, “beats the big blue suburban box stores”.
